ahoy...hoping to meet island hoppers for January

Young, fit, lively, crew of four seeks captain & sails for Carribean adventures this January (2014). Our ultimate goal is to perform an off-shore puppet show along the Puerto Rican coast and be back stateside in time to tap the maple trees. However, we're eager to get on the water, and will adjust our plans to meet your itinerary--going to Nassau? Tobago? Havana? We're game!! Not coming back? We make friends easy, and will figure something else out for our return. Not much sailing experience between us, but I did paddle the Mississippi a couple years back for what that's worth.?? We've all at least been on a sailboat before--some of us even remember how to pull the ropes! In addition to our dusty dixie cups, however, as a group, we wear many other hats: musician, carpenter, cook, storyteller, singer, dancer, yoga instructor, painter, deck swabber, night-watchman, general lackie, etc. We can depart, with short notice, from anywhere on the southeast coast of Florida starting anytime after Jan 4. We may joke around a lot, but we are very serious about safety on the seas. If your jib is well-cut, and your deck needs a swabb'n, call Ken for a good time: 231.360.4219…no mast too big, or dingy too small!

Funny enough post that you might just find somebody....

RE boatman's quotes...

Dean Martin was a God in my house growing up (Italian)

My favorite Dino quote...

"I tried jogging once..... I had to give it up because the ice kept jumping out of my cocktail..."

You could always stick something in the Crew Available section.. and browse through the Crew Wanted section to see whats going..
Be aware this is mainly a site for 'Straights'... with a sprinkling of 'Off the Walls'... so maybe less bouncy may freak folk out less
