Hi all, ( please go to Website: Furaha Caribbean Blue Explorer
for my homepage )
For the last 8 years, I have been working on boats, and have owned 3. First a 24-footer, then the 30-footer "Lutine", and most recently I have a trimaran
of 39-foot. With these boats I've been across the Atlantic several times and cruised South America
, the Caribbean
and islands off the coast of Africa
. The South coast of England
is one of my favorite areas, but I love the East and West coasts of Sweden
too - but only in summertime!
Sailing is great, and it is at it's best when one can share the experience, although I have sailed across the Atlantic single-handed too, and loved it!
The last 4 years I have worked with my partner from Austria. She is a sailing instructor and a great person to have on board any boat
. Unfortunately she is busy at the moment and cannot undertake any voyaging. We manage yacht deliveries, charter
yachts and are a great team. I skippered, with her as mate, a 60 foot Volvo
yacht in South Africa
I'm willing to do maintenance work
on yachts too... So if you need good experienced help or advice in a refit
or voyage preparation I am available.
(I have good skills with fiberglass/epoxy, painting, varnishing but also have a very keen understanding of electrical
systems and auxiliary engines. I have worked in England, Martinique
as a rigger)
is my other home ground and I am a very apt and willing ships-cook.
I have a US B1/B2 visa.
certificate, and celestial navigation
STCW '95 Firefighting, Sea Survival, First Aid.
VHF radio license
, diesel engine maintenance
and a UK driving license
upward 85.000 miles logged, and 9 transats.
I usually require: travel to/from yacht, room and board for the duration.
I am open to all sorts of ideas so get in touch via forum if you think I can help.
