I'm heading up to Cebu the Philippines
about the 2nd week of October. I'm currently based in Miri Malaysia
on the Island of Borneo.
You will be going up on a 65ft long by 40 ft wide trimaran
. It is one comfortable ride.
Duties would be sharing the 24 hour watch moving or in traffic lanes. All crew members will be trained to start the engine
and pickup and reposition anchor
Stops along the way may include Labuan, Brunei, Kota Kinabalu, and Puerto Princesa. Stops are only 1 or 2 nights.
Total distance of this trip is about 850 nautical miles. For fuel
economy I like to run about 5.5 knots speed over ground. This means about 6.5 days of motoring. Total trip time will be about 10-12 days.
No smoking below deck
. Everyone has their own bunk and if you are a couple you can have a king size stateroom.
I, your captain
and owner, don't drink or smoke and there are no pets
Experience is not necessary. However, you need to be able to swim, follow instructions, and communicate in English
. Perfect English
is not required. Please be aware the purpose of this trip is to go get a new wing mast
for the boat
so it will be motoring the entire way. The boat
has a great autopilot
, so your duties during your shift are mainly sitting in the pilot house and reading and checking for boat traffic.
Pilot house is 100% covered hardtop for wind
and rain protection.
Please send me a private message here if interested. Tell me if you require any compensation, and if so the amount.
Note: I will be based in Cebu for about 1 month while the mast
is put on. I will then head
back to Miri. You may be interested in staying with me during that time and the return trip.
