Hi Sailing Gal,
If you are still looking for crew, if I can get a flight sorted from Ottawa Canada, I would love to help you sail up.
I don't have a vast wealth of experience, but helped sail a friends Pearson 424 offershore to Annapolis from Bahamas last spring without any problems.
I work hard, don't complain, love to cook, don't get sick and keep a good watch, and am keen to get more offshore experience.

Hey there,
My names Dave I'll be in St. Thomas tommorow the 28th. If your still around I'd love the oppurtunity to swing by and check out the boat.

I’ve worked in and around the marine industry extensively for the past twelve years. I’m experienced in navigation including GPS, Chart reading, radar operation, as well as communication and docking.

I have plenty of experience with bright work and bottom cleaning and don’t mind cooking and cleaning either. I grew up crewing local regattas and I have a basic understanding of most marine systems.

Recently I crewed for Derick Woolverton through the Bahamas on a single screw LRC 68’ Nordhaven. I was responsible for moving this vessel during daytime and through the night both in shallow water and blue. I’d like to get more blue water experience for a captains license so if you need an extra set of hands I’d love to hear from you.
