ASA certified through Bare boat charter, mature male ready to go!

Retired military, have owned and currently own bigger boats and have many hours sailing protected waters.

I am a pretty good cook, handy with electrical, wood, and fiberglass repairs, and can wield a mean sander and paint brush!

I am a non smoker, but do like a drink or beer now and then.

I am in good shape and disciplined after 20 years in the Navy! I am very flexible with time and have enough income to do what I want. (Not looking for a free ride)! I was an Aircraft Electronics Technician but don't expect that I can fix your old ssb! ha ha

Fifty seven years young, always ready for a new adventure. I have traveled a good share of the world and have lived in Spain, Iceland, and all over the US. Went to school in Indonesia a couple of years ago and finished a course on maintenance and "flying" ROVs. The corporation did not come through on their promises so I never worked the oil rigs but had a great experience from it!

Drop me a line to discuss your crewing needs.

I appreciate the offer and the money would not be a problem, but I really want to get some experience under sail.

Re: ASA certified through Bare boat charter, mature male ready to go!

Did 20 years in Navy myself, subs though.

If you are still interested I need someone to help sail my 43' catamaran from Grenada to St. Martin the first week of November. Would like to do it straight through but would consider a few stops depending on duration of the weather window.

Will send you PM tomorrow if no reply here by then.

Re: ASA certified through Bare boat charter, mature male ready to go!

That sounds like a great sail but the cost of flying into Grenada and home from St. Martin would be prohibitive for such a short trip and so few days in the Caribbean.

It is funny how we all say we "did" xx years in the Navy. It almost sounds like a jail term! ha ha
