Hello Cruisers and all thee who are livin the dream,
My name is Colin I am just finishing my OUPV/Master100 class and will need to log more underway time before I send in my application. A little bit about me related to the sea.
CG reserve for 5 years Boatswain mate 3rd class
Owned my own 25ft. sailboat for 5 years
whitewater raft guide/kayaker
More info about me. I am 25, 26 on Dec 1. Graduated from Western Washington
University in outdoor recreation and video production. I have traveled extensively around the world. Madagascar
, Kenya, Sudan. Did a European, Australian, and New Zealand
backpack. Rowed my own boat
270 miles down the Colorado River. And spent 7 months last year living in Mongolia. I have a film website which is a hobby and ticket to more adventure www.suntimefilms.com
. I currently am living in my 19ft yurt on a permaculture farm, milking goats, feeding chickens and studying my captains material. Luckily the captains class was a refresher from my CG boatswain mate schooling. I really need as many underway hours as I can get and want more experience sailing blue water
. I have dive gear
, topside and underwater video equipment
, strong sense of adventure, long wavy lochs and require very little creature comforts. I have been stuck in many situations content using a rock for a pillow.
The majority of my sailing experience was in the san juan islands
and dipped into Canadian waters a few times. I was competent enough to single
hand the boat
and perform simple mechanics. Being a divemaster and class V river guide I feel I have developed a good sense of leadership and risk management. I Would love to create memories with a new crew.
