To Whom it may Concern...
If you need me for a delivery before mid-October I'm afraid I'm unavailable...
I fly to Cork, Eire. on Monday 19th to collect a 35ft sloop and will be delivering it to the Costa del Sol...
If its not a short notice/rush job like this one(4 days)....
feel free to PM me here or e-mail me...
Cheers,
Phil

pirate Available again... sorry to those waiting for replys... will catch up now...

Well thats the Cork to Spain job done and dusted... once we got the engine sorted after failure and a jury fuel system sorted out in Falmouth with a lot of help and driving around from Atoll we made the trip in record time... the Biscay was a millpond and a brisk N'ly rushed us down the W. coast of Portugal... one night in Porto Sherry waiting for a lull and we rushed through the Staits and past Gib...
Guess what..........
I'm Available again....

I am moving a 41' sailboat from Maryland to Kehma, Texas soon. What do you charge per day? I think 15 days sounds about right. I will be your mate. I am straight.

Re: Yacht Delivery - From Anywhere / To Anywhere . . .

I am working something out.Your rate is very good by the way. The cost for airfare might make it a little priceyfor me. I wanted whoever to know that in close quarter over a 20 days period with me being part of the crew,there was no need to be uncomfortable.My famous actor in-law is gay. I have no problems there.I wanted to take one variable off the table.

My window of OK weather is now.I did not want to wait until spring.The no traffic rule on the ICW at night makes the trip 35% longer.

pirate Re: Yacht Delivery - From Anywhere / To Anywhere . . .

Well.... thanks for the vote of confidence...
As for the travel... who knows another job may turn up that would save you the return...
The NY crossing from the UK used to be reasonable last I did it...
depends on the Greyhound after that...lol
