Taking the n-to-e route directed at Cuba, Caymans, Jamaica and finally to Trinidad. On board expenses paid, must be able to stand watches. If interested, more information will be provided.

I left in November of 2008. However, there are 8 yards with travel-lifts, 4 of them could handle your boat with no problems. There was one, "Dockyard", that you could keep your mast on and store the boat undercover. All are gated with security guards and video cameras. Get a reservation by June because on a busy year close to 2000 boats from all over the world are on the hard for the hurricane season while the owners fly home.

Contact the Yacht Services Assn. of Trinidad and Tobago (YSATT) office for current answers and advice.

I appreciate the information. Do you have a name of a yard that you would recommend?

Depends.
I always hauled at Power Boats where I could hire contractors of my choice and they were more user friendly to liveaboards. Peake's is more high end and their staff is used for any work. IMS is more scruffy but has a good reputation. Coral Cove discourages exstensive repairs. There's a new yard in Harts Cut where the WWII PBY's came out of the water on a ramp, but it wasn't open when I left. Dockyard had closed do to bad management.

Hi Zack,
Can you tell us a little more about yourself...like what are you doing in Cartegena, would you want to do the whole trip from Panama to Trinidad or just a part of it, any special skills (electrical/mechanical) do you how to set a spinnaker, any dietary needs, adverse to heavy lifting (the mast is 80 feet); whatever you want to share. Our direct email is captnbruce@yahoo.com. or stoddcdm@hotmail.com We have picked up crew from the internet before and everyone of them we'd have back. Looking forward to hearing from you.
Bruce and Sharon Anderson

Re: Panama to Trinidad April 2011

We are a couple, retired architect and retired computer sales, 40 years sailing and racing experience in Puget Sound. The two of us sailed our 48' ketch JAZZ from Houston/Venezuela/Florida; took a year. We have bare boated in South Pacific and Alask, lived in Italy a year, Hawaii a year, both excellent cooks, in excellent health. Erne is 5' 10", 165 lbs., Marti is 5'3", 110 lbs. Erne just published his first novel; Marti is an oil painter.
Love to hear from you if we appear to be a possible fit.
Marti

Re: Panama to Trinidad April 2011

Got your message and thanks for responding.
You sure have the sailing experience.
My husband likes to push the boat to it's limits and as a previous competitive racer, I believe we need a young buck to haul out 80 pound genakers out of the hold and be able to hoist it up the 80 foot mast.
Thanks Marti and Erne for the interest. I'll keep you on file. Maybe the four of us could get the sails out of the hold?....

Re: Panama to Trinidad April 2011

I'm a blue water sailer who doubles as a business journalist. I've been landlocked for awhile and have several months off. Happy to send you more detailed info documenting experience, if you're still in the market for crew. Short take: I'm a 48-year-old female, fit and healthy, and regularly described as "good crew." I have great references, pull my own weight, and am easy to get along with. Cheers, M.

Re: Panama to Trinidad April 2011

Hi Bruce & Sharon,

This is your neighbour, Nick on Jedi

I can recommend Peake's boatyard in Trinidad. Excellent yard, top notch. Get your roti's at Powerboats though

For this trip I think it's best to leave the spinnakers stowed below; it's uphill. We'll be following you later this summer but stop in Curacao.

ciao!
Nick.

Re: Panama to Trinidad April 2011

Do you still need contacts for Trinidad? Yes Peaks is expensive.
