two-three weeks Boca to Dry Tortugas

Fit 67 year old owner of 50 ft. Gulfstar sloop with all amenities, including dive compressor, looking for one or two crew members with substantial coastal sailing experience to accompany owner on leisurely 2-3 week cruise from Boca Raton to Dry Tortugas and back with probable stop at Key West and elsewhere in between beginning in late April or beginning of May. Absolutely no drugs or smoking, but no problem with the reasonable enjoyment of "adult beverages" when not underway. Regular crew (translate spouse) is unavailable for this trip and the trip beckons after much too long at the dock. You can investigate vessel and some prior cruising logs at SailingDuet.com.

Re: two-three weeks Boca to Dry Tortugas

Do you have any dates in mind or flexible?

Re: two-three weeks Boca to Dry Tortugas

I am somewhat flexible. Cannot leave until April 20 and really want to be back by May 23. Best weather is the earliest departure to avoid late afternoon strong thunderstorms, but a week or so one way or the other not a big deal. Actual duration dependent on weather and usual cruising contingencies.

Just got back from a run from Marathon to Ft Jefferson. Great time of year to go. Let me know if you are still looking for crew.

Re: two-three weeks Boca to Dry Tortugas

I should be heading that way myself with Wife and Daughter in our boat if maybe you'd want another boat tagging along.
I'm not sure out times would work but maybe.

Re: two-three weeks Boca to Dry Tortugas

Otr, I could be available for said cruise, I also was thinking of cruising that way on my Krogen trawler, have been there before and enjoy diving and all of the above. Really was amazed at the quality reefs off Loggerhead key, a short dingy ride from one of the forts anchorages.

Moved on from sailing to trawler as my wife's preference.

Safe travels!
