Re: St Maartin to Panama Canal

Captain,

Please keep me in mind if you need crew.

I have a USCG Master 100 ton Inland license, USCG Mate 100 ton Near Coastal license both with sail and towing endorsements. I also have my STCW 95 BST, Basic and Advanced Marine Fire Fightingand Radar Observer Unlimited certificates and TWIC. I am a United States citizen and have a USA passport. I have more then 800 days sea time and over 25,000 ocean miles.

You can see my resume here

I can provide you with references if you feel there is a match between your needs and my experience.


Best Regards

Charlie Cook

Re: St Maartin to Panama Canal

Hey I'm in St Maarten, working as a dive master. I'm Canadian and have lots of cruising experience, I'm looking to increase my logged seatime to finish my 500 ton license. We could meet up for a drink somewhere if you like.

Hi Dragon Lady,

Keep me in mind for Pacific crossing, I now own a Lavezzi , but have cruised extensively for the past 12 years on my Beneteau Oceanis 440. Retired , I am available at short notice .

Cheers

Re: St Maartin to Panama Canal

Thanks everyone, it seems my original delivery skipper is defaulting on our agreement and I will have to get the professional crew to take the boat from St Marrtin.

Sorry if I messed any of you about.

titou I will be looking for crew again when the boat gets to Australia in July so maybe we can do something then.

Re: St Maartin to Panama Canal

Thanks boatman, I know all about being messed about after flying a guy from Aust to the Carribean only to be told after a week of sailing the boat around that it was all too hard.
Anyway the professional skipper arrives on Wed, so hopping for smooth sailing now.
