Retired firefighter/Paramedic, Experienced Crew

55 year old retired firefighter/paramedic seeking short term cruising, boat sitting, or delivery positions world-wide.

Clean, responsible, easy going. Non-smoker, social drinker, no drugs.

I don't know it all, but have sailed five trans-ocean crossings, the entire east and west coasts of the US and Mexico, Great Lakes, ICW, Gulf, Bahamas, VIJ's, Hawaii, Vancouver Is., Ireland, Iceland. Sloops, cutters, ketches, catamarans, and trawlers. Sail to 50', power to 55. Single and twin screw. Good knowledge of navigation, diesel and gasoline engines, boat 12v and plumbing systems, cruise prep, daily maintenance, provisioning, and can even cook a bit. Can catch, clean, and cook fish too! Have all my own gear, stand my own watches.

CV and extensive references available.

Cliff

As a retired FF/PM myself, I can attest to the culinary abilities of the profession!

Cliff,
I was just wondering if you are around or fairly close to the Great Lakes?

You guys are my heroes. I'm a FF/PM who can just see retirement coming over the horizon. Can't wait to join you on the high seas!

Re: Retired firefighter/paramedic, experienced crew,

Are you still looking for travel. We are at Puerto Morelos, MX on our Islander 36 sloop. Retired couple headed for Rio Dulce river in Guatemala. Need a third hand to get through overnight travel locations. If interested how soon are you available and what will you need?

Washed up, maybe... I'm hell on wheels in the kitchen though, and there's not a rookie alive who can beat me to the dinner table!

The best part of my career was spent in the day room and around the kitchen. Oh yeah, and somebody hire Cliff, he's one of a kind and you'll have a friend for life...

Hey, good cooks get priority when choosing a long passage sail!

Re: Retired firefighter/paramedic, experienced crew,

Departure from Honolulu to Saipan planned April 5 or 6. 35-40 day passage if you are interested. Volunteer position and will need to get yourself to and from the boat. If winds send us south, will make a stop in Federated States of Micronesia. If not, straight across. Send me you contact info if interested in getting out of the cold for a month or two. Saipan is home port, and crew is welcome to hang for a while and enjoy Saipan.

Cheers,
Chris

Re: Retired firefighter/paramedic, experienced crew,

Thank you for offering this opportunity Chris, but I'm probably not your guy.

Regardless, the best to you and yours for a fun, safe passage.
