Offshore experience wanted
I am a 65 year old retired male. I have a Catalina 27 that I am able to single hand and have experience sailing to the San Juans and other Puget Sound locations. I have not done any overnights while underway.

I would appreciate an opportunity to test my ability to crew on a sailing vessel. Willing to travel pretty much anywhere to join a short or long cruise. My goal is to experience a multi-day ocean passage.

I have had two failed attempts so far because of boat not being ready to sail. Same boat twice. My mistake. Stuck with it for two weeks recently in Pago Pago. I participated in repairs and installations on the boat but ran out of time and confidence in the boat.

I am a former aircraft mechanic/avionics tech/medical equipment tech. Pretty good at fixing anything.

Also good at rat catching. See picture.

I live in Bremerton, WA

Re: Bucket list item

Hello- My name is Lilly and I am looking for a crew mate for my boyfriend Barry who is taking out a Lagoon 400 S2 Catamaran out of La Paz Mexico for 3 weeks up the Sea of Cortez. We were both going to go but something came up for me and it would be the two of you. He is a 73 y/o excellent physical shape tan tall smart guy who is also a pilot, dirt bike rider and owns his own machine shop in San diego where we live.
It would leave 8-31-- 9-21 3 weeks.
You would each be doing cooking...
Let me know if this is something of interest to you.

Best Regards Lilly
