Hello Sailor. I am a retire Army SGT. Will depart from Puerto Rico
in a one way trip to Santa Martha Colombia
. If you are bored and want just to sail, call me at 9three92four7,5zeroo,eigth,sixx.
I am departing this week in a venture 33 and will love to have some company, it's about 8 days traveling and the wheater report shows great sailing wheather.
]Iím a 51 year old retired guy with 8 years US Navy experience- Boatswainís Mate 2nd class (rank = to sergeant in army)- assault boat coxswain/ master helmsman/ master lookout/ master rigger (and instructor for each), I have circumnavigated the globe 5X for Uncle Sam. As a civilian, I drove an 88í sailing ketch that I co-owned and operated for several years sailing from Maine to Alabama and back a half dozen times- coastal and ICW operations.
I understand radar and can navigate well with gps, loran, and if you have almanacs and sextant I can perform basic astral navigation (although Iím very rusty).
I am not a mechanic but can do almost all (standard) maintenance, a fair hand at short term fix for emergency electrical, and plumbing issues; I donít mind getting my hands dirty. I am willing to work as a crewman or as crew supervisor as you require. I work and play well with others.
I am bored being stuck on land- Iím feeling land locked. I would be willing to sail from anywhere to anywhere on any vessel safe to make the trip required if you cover round trip costs of transport and basic expenses. I am located near Boston.
I am retired due to a blown disk in my back so toting barges and lifting bails is a no-go, but I enjoy doing light maintenance and upkeep.
If given enough lead-time I may be able to help put together a crew for you.
I also know several licensed captains (they would require the appropriate level of compensation).
