Re: crew wanted S. florida west coast

Sounds like a great opportunity for someone who has no boat.

Re: crew wanted S. florida west coast

Hello captain. I live over on Merritt Island and have been sailing and boating over the past 30+ years. I am 62, in good health, have done some deliveries and cruising in Chesapeake, Florida, Bahamas and Virgin Islands over the years. I currently own a Colombia 8.7 and sail the ICW and near-shore Cape Canaveral. I am very able, interested in meeting people and, importantly, very flexible. Send me a PM if you are interested and maybe we can set up a time to chat and see where things go.

Hello Rock,
I relocated to SW FL 2 yrs ago from KW FL where I lived, sailed, and maintained a 29 ft sloop. I am currently working PT but will be available FT after 1/1/19. In the meantime I am available afternoons and weekends for repairs and shakedowns. My wife is also an ablebodied sea person and may be available at times. Here is my contact info and I will try to attach my sailing resume.

Re: crew wanted S. florida west coast

Hello Shadow,
I am Paolo, an italian guy who likes to travel. I'd like to try a boat experience since I'm a goal-oriented person, eager to learn the sail. My intention was never to travel for free, I volunteer my time to help the crew with their works. I would learn the sailing and offer my support in exchange for helping, taking a guard duty, cooking, cleaning and boat maintenance. I do not drink or smoke, but I don't mind others doing so. I can cook italian food and teach you italian or just entertain you with my stories. I have never sailed, I don't know the basics but I learn fast. I'm currently in Miami and I'm trying a sailing chance for Caribbean or anywhere.
I'd like to join the crew and I'm happy to offer my energy services as a sidekick deckhand.
I should be so grateful to him if you could give me this fresh experience.
Thank you all in advance!

Take a look at (click on) Sailing Singles.
