Welcome aboard, have fun on your sabbatical. Be sure to check out the crewing
section here at CF. And also a word of advice for crewing
Be sure to look at crewing interviews as a two way street, as they interview you you can interview them. Don't just hope on a boat cause they want you, check out their safety gear
, ask about latest maintenance
, captains attitude towards heavy weather
tactics and their route
and departure schedule. If they can't remember the last time they hauled out or are heading to the North Atlantic in the winter...might be hints it won't be a fun trip.
Anyways, have a great time.
