Older Female Crew Member Wanted

I am looking for a female crew to travel the South Pacific starting from Panama. I have a small 30' Albin Ballad set up for long term cruising. Why female? Ladies are generally neater, teachable and don't usually pretend to know everything. I am looking for an older lady, 45 plus to travel with. Someone willing to stand watches, cooking, cleaning and general boat work. Not looking for a prma donna. If you want to try living on a boat with no privacy, cooking pots that are usually moving targets, shower in the cockpit, reply. I don't play games or BS people. With me what you see is what you get. I'm sure I've made this sound so attractive I will be overwhelmed with replies. Hope to hear from a lady looking for some great sailing in the South Pacific. I will transit the canal some time this month.

Re: Older Female Crew Member Wanted

HAHA, that's a great ad. 15 years ago, I placed a similar ad on AOL (remember them?). Except I was younger, so didn't put an age limit. I also mentioned the "back in, drive out" bathroom, as there was no room to turn around.

In any case, I got quite a few replies, and the girl I took, is now my wife of 10 years.

Together we've cruised both sides of the Atlantic, and over 30 countries.

Honesty is the best policy, sugar coating is only good for cookies.

Good luck.

Paul.

Re: Older Female Crew Member Wanted

Older female, 45 plus...?

Any Lady in that age range with an ego probably won't reply.
(Hint: Nobody consider themselves "Older" before they hit 80 or so)
duh....

Good luck Einstein

Re: Older Female Crew Member Wanted

Hi . I am 2 years younger than u so i guess I fit the older woman part.
Just returned to Co from a month long exploratory trip to St John living on a a non sailing boat in Coral Bay . I did a short crew member stint on a 42 sloop ( captain was downright mean and negative ) two traits i do not have. Sailed on various other boats , hiked and snorkeled everywhere , survived the Skinny Leg crowds and didn't get kicked by a donkey.
Not sure what is next but open to all .
I completed my ASA 101- 104 in Jan in Mex . Which means something but not much .

Gillian, I lived in the virgins off and on for 5 years, mostly on STX. I spent time on STJ too. Worked on STT two different times for 6 months. I'm not mean. I don't like to argue, confrontation is something I try to avoid. Email me at symystic@yahoo.com and lets dicuss what you are looking for. I'm in the states visiting my kids, leaving Wed. for Panama and my boat. mark
