Looking for Adventure!

I am an inexperienced sailor although I am a navy veteran, have worked in shipyards as a pipe fitter / welder and I live on a sailboat. I have a degree in electronics w/ computer skills. I am a hard working and mechanically inclined individual who lives for adventure. I cook, clean, I have some rope skills. I am looking to crew on anything to anywhere with an airport to get back. I am posting this same thread in the "Crew Positions" section

Hi Saltlifvr former navy helicopter pilot here, spent time in Orange Park, right up the way from Green Cove Springs!

I am a solo skipper, 62 years old, that often takes on "volunteer guest/crew" as a pay as you go type thing, usually food and expenses, around $400USD a month depending on crew desires ((marina living or anchorages ) type of trip (passages or day sailing). Crew help with all aspects of operating the boat, including having a say of where and when boat will go.

I am currently in Trinidad hauled out trying to get the boat back up to snuff ;repainting topside/bottom, new radar, wind generator, electronics package, etc

I arrived in Trinidad a month ago after 3 years travel from Australia to Trinidad via the southern route around Africa. During that time I had about 50 of these volunteer crew for periods of a month to 4 months. I can give you refeences from some of these folks if you would like to contact them.

Plans are to cruise here locally (Trinidad ) through July, then either Suriname, Venezuala, Columbia for several months. After that, things are a bit indefinete.

I have a 25 year old guy, friend of a business aquaintance from my former life joining at the end of the month, for an indefinite period, no experience, just a desire to try the life style (a job at Wal Mart does not have much of a hold on him in NC) so you would take the other crew berth.

Juno is a Radford 40, cutter or double headsail sloop depending on how you view such things, with a steel hull and aluminum deck, aft cockpit with a raised deck.

If you are interested, let me know, either here on the forum or at my email tomonjunu@yahoo,com.
