pirate Refit Crew Wanted: Indian Ocean - Perth, West Australia

hello to you if you are a potential refit crew member!

I'm currently finishing refitting my 42' yacht, afloat in the marina. about 3 months to go, with most hard work already done!

I am 'advertising' for a day's work a week in return for your own cabin.

no real additional costs/duties either way.

good public transport, shops, marina loos/showers etc.

beautiful beaches/surf breaks/fishing

if you were interested this would give you the crew member a low cost base to hang out in this beautiful part of the Indian Ocean, for 1-6 months, in return for a little bit of work.

Captain is an arts graduate and works part time.

please reply to Cap'n John!

Re: Refit Crew Wanted: Indian Ocean - Perth, West Australia

So....what work remains to be done? Might affect one's decision to come aboard..
Otherwise sounds like an unbeatable deal.
Yet, how many true sailors can be on a boat that needs work and only work one day a week? Methinks more days per week would be volunteered.

Absolutely amazing part of the world. Sounds like a great deal, especially if you look at rent prices in that area!

Re: Refit Crew Wanted: Indian Ocean - Perth, West Australia

hello and thank you for your thoughts!

the yacht is ten years young - unfortunately following minor flooding before I bought her, she needs

1 a new engine, which I have just installed today, but not connected until next week -touch wood
2 new electrics. she has solar and a battery bank working, but needs new 12v wiring. I'm busy reading a book on the subject!
3 240v electrics - I currently (ptp) have a couple of mains cables shore power coming in so I have electric portable halogen oven/kettle/fan heater-cooler/sometime fridge. i shall be putting in 240v cabling more formally sometime soon
4 she has a good coach roof although i need to fit 3 proper hatches to it. i have already added two deckhouses -main and aft cockpit - which give cover from wind-sun-rainshelter, and make a nice space topsides. they need windows/hatches fitted and a bit of waterproofing/strengthening.
5 the head needs the loo reconnecting, i can't get the hose over the the fitting! (hence use the loos/showers in the marina)
6 onboard plumbing is hose with tap attached and galley sink. plumbing is 'the next job'
7 accommodation - I have gutted the interior, leaving the fore cabin v and head as a suite for crew, // the rest is 'open-plan' pending fitting of partitions/bulkheads. 'Cap'ns cabin' is the aft section, which needs a a pat/bulkhead, plus a head in due course.
8 deck needs painting sometime
9 deck hardware would like a polish some places
10 new additional bollards/cleats need installing
11 hull could do with a grind/sand over 3 m2 where i have epoxied
12 brightwork needs oiling, if thats not a contradiction
13 main bent on today. genny tomorrow. mizzen day after
14 I have begun instaling divats (divats are like davits but are deck level timber beams which go under the tender, not poles from which the tender dangles)
15 i might turn that whole extra area into a decked area for use when the tender is afloat

I suppose the key point is that we are pen bound until a few of those things are done, so its up to me and crew to decide how hard we work before we sail off south down the coast to Perth which is an hour's drive or an easy 6 hour sail.

all best

Capn John
