I would like to go as crew on either a sail boat
or power boat
. Power boat
for a long cruise
, to get more experience in navigation
and, honestly, as a way to be on a boat
without paying for my own fuel
. Sail boat for any amount of time because I'd just love to learn something about sailing.
I am in Charleston about every other weekend. I've been a power boater for several years, but want to learn about sailing. A day trip or even just a coupla hours in the bay would be a good start. I could also take a week off with a little notice and might be up for a longer trip as well. I would prefer a trip that began/ended at the same point so I don't have to pay for plane trips. If it was a delivery
and all I had to pay for was a plane ticket, I might be up for that too, but I don't imagine a delivery captain
would want an inexperienced crew member
I DO have experience on power boats, navigation
(paper and electronic), etc. In other words, I already know about boating
etiquette and why there can only be ONE captain
. I am easy to get along with, don't drink (but don't mind if others do). I have never been sea-sick (but I'm sure there's always a first)!
I've been on two 2-week 1000 mile trips on my own boats (Intracoastal), but I've never been offshore
, except on the Gulf about 75 miles while running from Big Pine Key to the Okeechobee Waterway.
I'm a quick learner and I also have a varied background that means, while I may not be familiar with something in particular, I usually have experience in something similar to use as a reference point. Some of my jobs? Mechanic
(small and large engines), waterproofing, photography
, truck driver. I can cook a little, and I don't mind cleaning
If you have a motor
yacht delivery and want someone with some experience for a 1-2 week trip, I would be up for that as well, as long as it is expense paid (or at least, mostly paid).
So, if you have an opportunity for me let me know.
