Is there a job board for cruisers?

We are interested in hiring someone for marketing/social media/web but would love to have that person familiar with the boating/live aboard lifestyle as well. Is there a place I could post an ad? TIA

"TIA" with a request for information generally means "thanks in advance"

Re: Is there a job board for cruisers?

@RLYS - I've seen people get great response to this kind of ask on relevant social media platforms. Like posting in sailing groups for this kind of thing, or even with the right tags on IG. I'm most familiar with Facebook and Instagram, but I've seen and heard from people who have been astounded with the quality and relevance of the responses. It's not a job board here, and yes, you may well have to wade through irrelevant resumes but you could wind up with a great option or two or three. Good luck.

Lots of us on this forum are of the age that we think first of TIA as stroke related rather than as text speak. Iím with you Gord.

Ditto. I resemble that remark and even own a slide rule (if I could remember where I put it).

Maybe try the Classifieds here? https://www.cruisersforum.com/forums/f64/

I'd just go on You Tube and find someone you like doing a sailing vlog and approach them directly. You already know they're tech savy, understand your market and would generally jump at the chance for an extra income stream.
