Looking for a Captain with Character (and a Few Others)

We need a cool captain who isn't afraid of a camera and has loads of character. If you think you;re the guy (or gal!) message me back! We will be sailing the West Coast of North America on a very interesting project that I won't get into here.
Can't wait to hear from you! Also, if you are not a captain but have some experience, we probably need a few people so message me anyway

X2!....

I love the number of "I can't tell you what I am doing, or where I live, but you will like what I am doing" posts in the past week or so.

They rank right up there with "I got a boat to sell, but I ain't telling you the price" posts we see all the time.

Yep, big area and no time frame specified. If you’re serious get the post count up and send me a PM. Kinda sounds like it could be fun for a grey beard old fart.

As North America is at the centre of the Universe - it must be left a bit

FWIW, I've got a parrot on my shoulder, a wooden leg and a Cutlass - can even muster a "Aaaarrrgh me hearties" when needed (one of my best chat up lines ).

Re: Looking for a captain with character (and others)

Sorry I wasn't more specific! I said the West coast because the project will entail sailing from alaska to LA and then to hawaii, including stops in every province and state between.

Our time frame is variable right now--we are not sure if it will be this fall, around september-october (and sailing won't be on the order of alaska to hawaii, but wherever is safe sailing at the time) or if it will be next spring. it depends largely on when our catamaran arrives. It's a 63'.

No spamming here, just a newbie girl who doesn't know a hell of a lot about sailing--that's what experts and captains are for--I am just the purveyor of a damn fine yacht!

So if you are interested in sailing the ENTIRE west coast of canada and the US and getting paid for it, post me!

Mr Jack, you are right here in my home town. I'd love to meet with you if you have any interest whatsoever.

Pm me and I'll send you my phone number?
