I havent yet introduced myself, so here goes.
I'm a 46 year old guy, who has never particularly had any secret desire to do any sailing of any nature whatsoever. Yet I recently (8 months ago) bought a ferro
43ft Hartley Fijian yacht and have been sprucing it up for a life at sea, however long or short it may be.
I completed a skippers course and have all the necessary tickets, but honestly not heaps of experience. Have done a few overnight passages on the South African east coast
My original crew compliment have all faded due to 'responsibilities and committments' and I will struggle to handle this 18 ton vessel on my own.
My plan is to leave SA Feb/March 2013 and head
towards the Caribbean
, I have posted a 'crew wanted' ad in the relevent section, but I may be open to a longer term committment with a boatless sailor with a bucket load of cash.
In reality, I really just want to travel to warm places and turns out im not too shabby at the sailing thing.
Have had a lot of fun reading some of the threads on here, you are a witty bunch.
Did I overdo the non-slip?
