Frazer - Congratulations on your purchase
. My name is Barry (I am Canadian - check out my short post on crew available
"stranded in Florida" if you get a chance to get an idea of my current situation). Briefly, came down to help with a friends purchase
of a catamaran
we we're planning on completing a possible circumnavigation
with. Unfortunately things didn't go well with his survey (unforseen structural damage scuttled the deal) so i'm left holidaying in florida
seeking another sailing adventure. I have a solid mechanical background - GM mechanical trades/engineering which i would hope could be useful in initial voyage. I am easygoing, like reading, exploring. young 53 can fit with younger crowd but not immature.
Hope your survey went better than my friends. Hope to hear from you. Oh, I also agree with the post recommending sailing towards Aruba
to pick up more favorable conditions. We had planned on seeing the San Blas Islands too.Of course no smoking, no drugs, occasional pint of ale would be ok. Hope to hear from you.
