Hello my name is Huntre Sarver. I would love join you and this exciting adventure. My experience on offshore, I was a first mate on several fishing charters out of Cape Hatteras during my college years and still once or twice a year. I lived in South Florida and we use to sail to the Bahamas the weekends just for fun. I have also 2002 66' Oyster from Fort Lauderdale to Boston and back twice with a very nice retired gentleman who has navigated around the world. Yes, that is my dream one day.
I have no criminal back ground and a very good personality. Please me with any questions or concerns via email (email@example.com) or 540-797-0024.
Just a thought, you might want to reconsider Galveston and go to the Corpus Christi or Brownsville area. Unless you catch a norther (and they are no fun), Corpus Christi puts you quite a bit further south for your trip. Brownsville isn't great for commissioning. Corpus Christi - actually the Aransas Pass/Rockport area - has several great yards for commissioning. Including House of Boats, which will let you work on your own boat.
