Smile Across Oceans or Down The Coast: Available to Crew Aug to Dec With Some Notice

Hello everyone

I am interested in voyages lasting more than several days to a month or so. Presently located in North East USA through 2012 with flexible schedule with some reasonable notice, I am seeking a crew position, if at all possible, where the owner would consider making a reasonable contribution to my travel cost to/from the boat.
I am well avail to assist in all boat operations during pre-prep to arrival clean-up and aboard daily operations. I am confident to stand watch day or night and capable of taking emergency actions when needed or as requested. Educated nurse, experience paramedic, open water PADI diver, yachtmaster offshore with ocean miles and crossing experiences plus many other useful certifications and experiences to assist you on your boat as a crew.

If you feel, I can be of assistance to you, please PM me.

Thank you

Good day stephenbriggs

Thank you for your reply to my posting and for your kind consideration to have me as a crew member on your vessel. I am interested and little colder weather sailing can be refreshing and challenging. If I can take North Atlantic in January, Australian winter is no-worries.
Going South to Perth from Darwin in the winter - I have never done that route - It would be about 3500 Km +/-??. It sound like a very nice journey.

If you can spare a moment, I would very much like to and appreciate learning more about your journey with possible departure date and perceived itinerary.

If you prefer, please PM me or I can provide you with my E-mail or other contact information - or as I can contact you by phone or your E-mail?

Will you be avail to assist with transportation and Etc.?

Good thoughts
Cheers

Hello Captain (him.jfrank)

Bayfield 29 is a very nice and safe smaller cruiser. It may not be as fast as we may want the boat to be under weaker winds. It has many things larger boats normally have as double head sails and large head. Although no V-berth, the size of the head is simply accommodating. I always liked them very much.

Dogs, I grew up with German Shepherds and always enjoy their accompany. The ICW in August, little warmer and no true wind during certain legs of the water way, however, I am sure your grandson will enjoy the diversity of the environments that you will be sailing through as well as experience the back countries a little.

Regretfully, I would like to express my thank you for your kind consideration to be a member of the boat crew team with your grandson and your canine family member, but must pass on your offer this time.

As you may also be aware, I have been advised by others captains of some petty theft and Etc. in some more desolate areas of the ICW passages, specially during overnight anchorage outside the commercial anchorages. I am sure you are more familiar with ICW, but in case that you were not aware. Although no true worries, I just wanted to share what others were kind enough to share with me in the past journeys up and down the ICW.

Fair wind, good thoughts and well wishes
Cheers
