Re: Victoria BC to Mexico Sept. 22nd

Very interested in your trip. I am currently living aboard my little 25 footer here in the Outer Banks of north carolina. I have been looking for oppurtunities to crew on bigger boats going further distances than I am able to do singlehanded on my little boat. I am a commericial fisherman and have worked Alaska, and am somewhat framiliar with your area and waters. it is beautiful country. I have limited access to internet (mostly just at the library where I am now) but I check more regularly when i am expecting a message. please contact me personally with a phone number if interested. I am easy going 25 year old male. Have done lots of differnet lines of work throughoght North America, including lots of guide work such as kayaking and whiteater rafting, ranch work, fishing, etc. Have swiftwater recuse certificates as well as CPR and first aid training. Most on my sea time is not sailing time, but as I said since I couldnt find anyone to really crew for I just bought my own little boat to play with. Have been learning a lot. Can put my boat up on the dry or sell it on asap. This boat is a learning experience, and has served me well, but I am looking further. Hope to hear from you soon!
