Miami to Panama

Miami to 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 Havana, Cuba, from Hopetown, Bahamas to Jacksonville, Fl., Lake Ontario, and Erie and the San Juans/Puget Sound/Vancouver Island.
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 3 persons and possibly 4. So you would pay your share of the expenses as 1/3rd or 1/4.
Hope to leave around May 21st, 2016 or when I line up crew.
Options-
1-Miami to Cuba/Mexico to Caymans then possibly Limon Costa Rica, then to Panama.
2-Miami to Cuba/Haiti (Windward Passage) to Port Antonio, Jamaica to Limon, CR, to Panama.
Must have funds to fly out of 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 EPIRB
-New traveler
-To keep in touch with Chris Parker
New Sat Phone
New Sony SSB receiver
Regarding Equipment:
1. liferaft for 6 persons but it has not been re-certified.
2. inflatable tender with oars.
3. new EPIRB-
4. Marine VHS with GPS and AIS receiving only, several handhelds.
5. weather reports and routing- Chris Parker.
Overall Sailing Matters:
1-I like to go the cheaper way. Anchor if possible with less fees to pay.
Email me at dnamron41@yahoo.com 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, etccc- people reputable in the community).
Are you interested?

Re: Miami to Panama

It sounds like you know a lot. With your experience, you can single handed and be done. Not sure why you need 4 crews. It is a small boat and this is not a short ride. I would not want to get on more than total of three souls. More is no better.

Point well taken. Looks like I have one crew so far and she has a captains licence for up to 100 tons. Not sure if it is active.
I would want a third person for sure.
If you are interested send me your sailing resume with references.
Other than my sailing resume that you read on my ad, I am 75 yrs. old, but in reasonably good health, am a Canadian, and a retired teacher (19 yrs) and employment counselor for the feds and the province (about 16 yrs). Longevity in my family- mom is alive at 105, dad died at 95, blood aunt died at 100. Me???who knows
