I am going to be moving my 1981 Stevens 47 from St. Thomas USVI to Savannah, GA in May and I am looking for some crew to help. I will be up front with this… money
is crazy tight and I am trying to find volunteers looking for some offshore
experience and fun. I can cover all provisions and drinks but that’s probably it.
I have been sailing most of my life (I am 42), I have owned this boat
for 15 months and in that time I have spent over 12 weeks living aboard
and I feel very comfortable with the boat
. She is a great sailing, seaworthy
and sea kindly boat that is setup for offshore passage
A buddy and I are flying down on May 7th and we plan to spend 4-5 days getting the boat fully provisioned and ready to leave. We plan to head
permitting, on May 12th from Crown Bay Marina on St. Thomas. Anyone planning to make this trip could fly into St. Thomas anytime from the 8th onward. The plan (at this point) is to sail the rumb line, outside and to the east of the Bahamas
with the option to turn to the west should we feel the need to seek shelter. I expect the passage
to take about 10 days. Plans are however loose, the weather
at the time will dictate our final route
and schedule. This is not a delivery
with no regard to weather or conditions, we are not putting a schedule before safety
and comfort so anyone contemplating making the trip needs to be flexible relative to schedule.
I am ideally looking for 2 crew to make a total of 4. I would prefer crew have some offshore experience and to know they’re way around a sailboat. Most importantly you need to be easy going, flexible, and easy to get along with.
