After April 2008, should anyone want a volunteer (plus pay his weight) crew member
-- for a catamaran
-- who can get himself anywhere, worldwide, on his own dime and generally support himself financially, and can get there on a flexible schedule / short notice - please count me in.
I'm, btw, also looking for anyone with a catamaran
who can teach ASA
108 - Offshore Passage
Making (anytime after April 2009) ... I can pay
What I'm looking for is experience on catamaran's. Either in helping delivery
or with real cruisers who need an extra hand - especially for ocean passages.
By May 2009, I will have ASA
Basic Keelboat ; Coastal Cruising ; Bareboat
Chartering; Coastal Navigation
; Advanced Coastal Cruising; Celestial Navigation
; New York
State Safe Boating
Certificate; Ham Radio License
I & II....
I'm leaving the working world at the end of April 2009 (when my contract
is up), plan to buy a catamaran for myself over summer, and start a circumnavigation
My main goal is to get seat time and experience before I get my own cat.
Also, general advice is welcome - e.g. books/courses/seminars I should consider (e.g. Coastguard 100 ton License
? / EMT training / basket weaving ?) ; psychiatrist to consult about this wacky idea ; people with prior experience/similar goals ; recommended gear
to buy etc...
