Gay sail Phuket Thailand from Philippines Fall 2018

Gay sail adventure trip aboard a gay owned sailing yacht owned by gay couple. Your sex nor sexuality is not an issue and this is not a romance advertisement. However, you must be comfortable around gay men who are the target customer.

This trip leaves September 30, 2018 from Cebu the Philippines. I have divided it into 7 segments with stops in Borneo, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, and Langkawi. Ideally you would arrive about September 10, 2018 for final prep and come on entire trip lasting until November 20, 2018.

See blog for route and dates at
HOT BuOYS Sailing: Gay sail Phuket Thailand, Langkawi, Singapore, SE Asia

Duties:

Hauling fuel, drinking water, and food from shore. And no we simply do not pull up to a dock to load. If we fill the swimming pool, all that water is brought aboard in 22 liter containers. 20 of them per filling.

Baking bread every day, helping to prepare meals, setting fish lines and cleaning catch.

Help with weekly cleaning of the bottom. Yes we clean every inch every week with soft plastic scrappers. It takes about 3-4 hours.

Washing sheets and clothes by hand. Yes we do have a piano, but no we do not have a laundry mat on board.

Washing floors, walls, and ceiling.

Bonus points if you play the piano, have a guitar, and know how to give a good non-sexual massage.

Very big bonus point if you can help market the trip, generate website traffic and help network to find paying customers. The more paying customers we find the more we can pay you and the greater tips you may receive.

This yacht is a comfortable cruising yacht and not a luxury super yacht nor a bare bones racing yacht. It is somewhere in between. No air conditioning and you must be able to still work if the captain is still working. If a 56 yo man can still work in the heat and sun, you should be able to also.

Your good health is important and an indication if you can cope with the type of work this job involves. Please reply with information that also details how often you go to the gym, swim, run etc.

The number one quality we search for in crew is the ability to be responsible to the vessel. Everything is very costly to repair and replace aboard a yacht and 90% of all problems I have experienced has been caused by crew who did something like:

1. Stood on large plastic hatch cover
2. Dropped heavy shackle from high because they tried to hold onto 6 items at same time.
3. Switched blackwater tanks without knowing what they were doing.
4. Didn't observe weather.
5. Didn't close hatch covers during rain.

Memory is the second quality. Example: Everytime you go to shore, take any garbage with you and check drinking water supply. Some crew need to be told every single time.

Your experience aboard a vessel is not a critical factor. In point of fact I prefer crew with little or no experience because they ask questions, usually do not try something on their own, and do not insist their way is the only and right way.

Fellow cruisers with experience who know what it means to do repairs on a vessel should be fine with me. Captains who bounce from boat to boat and never cleaned the barnacles or sewed a sail are not.

If you have little experience,
Tell me about your experience taking care of animals including people that must always be tended to day in and day out. Again your resume showing you took xyz sailing training courses or have ___ years experience are of no interest.

Story: I once met a Brazilian woman aboard a vessel with 20 years crew experience. She got most of those jobs because of her looks. Would she take a bag of trash to shore? Absolutely not.

Bike is okay. Motorcycle no.
Must be a nonsmoker.
You will be drug tested and must pass.
You are not permitted to bring a "friend" back to the boat.
You may stay on shore with your "friend".
Couple? Will consider.

No I do not have a private jet to pick you up.

Your nationality must be compatible with nations we are going to. Note: Israeli passport holders would skip few days in Brunei.

Long range plans:
Phuket to Langkawi runs December-March 2019
Haul out and bottom paint April 2019
Cambodia and Vietnam Summer 2019

If you work out, you may be with us a long time.

How do the finances work? Do you pay the crew or does the crew pay you? What about food etc?

I like you. In my dreams do I think someone would pay me for doing this amount of work.

I anticipate:

#1 Crew is expecting to be paid.
#2 Crew meals are included while on board and when on shore and dining with the captain or with a guest. When dining on their own food is not included.
#3 Transportation to and from the boat is negotiable.

The amount I can afford to pay and the amount of transportation I can cover depends on the # of paying guests.

Thanks for the very nice and sane reply.

Every once in a while someone will require all of this work done AND pay so much a day and a part of all expenses etc. I like that you put out there all of the stuff they will be doing.

P.S. Why do you clean the hull every week?

Re: Gay sail Phuket Thailand from Philippines Fall 2018

Why do you feel we are interested in your sexual practice? It's called sailing for a reason.

In this situation I think it was a good idea for the OP to post something about his orientation. Even among sailors there are some that would be very unsympathetic or even judgmental about a gay lifestyle and could make the cruise very uncomfortable to all.

Don't think he was gay, more S&M, whips and chains.

Apologies to the OP but this was just too good a straight line to pass up.

Re: Gay sail Phuket Thailand from Philippines Fall 2018

Why is it so hard for people to be nice? He is is being up front about what the gig implies. There really is no need for people to get snarky about his sexual orientation or what he is looking for in a paid position on his cruise.

It might not be something you are interested in. Who doesn't know of someone who is gay? People of the planet earth....learn coexistence...learn to respect other people's choices. He is not propositioning heterosexual people to convert to other orientations. He is looking for crew on gay cruises. Not your thing...no comments or homophobia required.

I was trying to be politically correct and say the position is open to potential crew members who are not gay.

Listing the fact that both owners are gay, and the customers on the trip will 98% likely be gay is kind of important since some people object to being around gay people. You know, that whole bashing/stoning and toss them from the building stuff.

Re: Gay sail Phuket Thailand from Philippines Fall 2018

Pbmaise - for what is worth I think your post was fair and honest and aligned to have crew know what to expect.

Nothing wrong with that !

Re: Gay sail Phuket Thailand from Philippines Fall 2018

Ignore the one responder who apparently finds references to sexual orientation uncomfortable.

The content of your post was entirely appropriate.
