Miami to N. Panama

Still need one person 6/12/2016

Miami to Northern Panama.
Must have references for safety purposes only but does not need fancy qualifications. What skills do you have?
Myself- sailing for 46 years from an 8' Sabot to 38' C&C Landfall. Owned about 20 different keel boats of several makes, raced some (1st. in the club for the year once), sold them. Sailed the Erie Barge canal from St. Clair Lake, Michigan, to Albany, NY then to Havana, Cuba and back to Florida, from Hopetown, Bahamas to Jacksonville, Fl., Lake Ontario twice, and Erie and the San Juans/Puget Sound/Vancouver Island a number of times.

Share in food and cruising fees only. Must prove funds available to fly out of Panama and passport acceptable for countries going through, valid of at least 7 or 8 months.
I plan to have at least 2 persons and possibly 3. So you would pay your share of the expenses as 1/3rd or 1/4.
Hope to leave around 3rd week of June, 2016 or when I line up crew.
1-Miami to Caymans via west side of Cuba then possibly Limon Costa Rica, then to Panama.
2-Miami to Windward Passage to Port Antonio, Jamaica to Limon, CR, to Panama.
I expect it to take a minimum of 3 weeks up to 7 weeks or more depending on winds.
If, however the crew wants to stop for a while, and all are agreeable, then no problem.
I plan to use a weather forecaster, and route planner, Chris Parker out of Florida. He is considered the guru of Caribbean sailing and is used by delivery captains, and cruisers and sailors alike. Very reliable.
Boat- Westerly 32, Fulmar sailboat, fin keel, good reputation English boat.
Installed a new Symrad Nav. System (not yet calibrated) with radar (gimbaled) including a depth sounder.
-New auto pilot.
-A new arc or tower to support 2 solar panels and inflatable dingy.
-A new wind generator with special quiet blades
-A new Ritchie bulkhead compass
-A new dodger
-Replaced most interior lights with LED lights
-A new Fortress #23 anchor.
-New Rocna anchor
-New traveler
-To keep in touch with Chris Parker
New Sat Phone Inreach Explorer
New Sony SSB receiver
Regarding Equipment:
1. 2 liferafts for 6 persons but they have not been re-certified.
2. inflatable tender with oars.
3. Marine VHS with GPS and AIS receiving only, several handhelds.
Overall Sailing Matters:
1-I like to go the cheaper way. Anchor if possible with less fees to pay.
Email me at with your email address with your sailing resume and other skills, your name, address, references (2) of your skills and character (lawyer, doctor, pastor, priest, rabbi, psychologist, teacher, previous boss, etccc- people reputable and verifiable from the internet Are you interested?

Re: Miami to N. Panama

Hi, I'm in Panama looking for opportunities. I don't have a resume as the last time I've been on a sailboat was years ago. I'm always free to go anywhere.
