I have been looking for bigger water
sail boats for the past five years'ish.
I found one in Fiji
, and it turns out he would like to bring it to the PNW, and that is my location. We have been emailing for the past couple of weeks, and he seems like a "normal" guy who needs to get back to work. I told him I don't have big water
experience, but he is willing to have me aboard. This is a dream come true for me, but most of my friends think I'm crazy because I don't know him.
I look at it as, there are no guarantees once you are out there. I can't imagine
a better way to get experience. He has asked for my credentials and even though they are minimal he's OK with it. What should I ask him in the way of credentials, without stepping on any toes? So my friends will feel more at ease.
I have been sailing most of my life, just not the big water. I have dreamed of it forever. I raised my kids
, myself. Have worked in the boating
industry for the past 10 years as a sparky,20 before that in residential. I want to go have some fun!
