Name: Max Drake
Age: Juuust shy of my 19th birthday at TOW
Experience: NONE! I have travelled throughout the United States, often working for food
or lodgings, so while I don't have experience, you can be sure I won't quit.
Location: Currently in Texas
, willing to come to you so long as you are in the continental US.
Why I'm Here: I would like to (once my travelling days are over) find a career working tall ships. Volunteer crewing
seems like a great way to gain experience on the ocean while still allowing me to see more of the world. I hope to find a safe boat
and a competent captain
to travel with.
Where I'd like to go: Most anywhere out of the US really. I'd love South America
, or the Pacific islands, but Europe
and Australia/New Zealand would be incredible as well. I'm looking for voyages of at least a month ideally, hopefully with stops in interesting places along the way.
I know I don't bring a lot to the table, but I'm happy to clean, stand watch, even cook (provided you show me how...) if you're seeking conversation during your voyage, I have many a tale to tell, and I'm always happy to chat about anything under the sun and learn new things. If you're looking for a warm body to stand watch, I'm more than happy to do that as well. If you need a dogsbody to pick up supplies in port or do maintenance
, I'm your man!
Basically, it boils down to this. I want to sail and see the world more than anything. Any captain
who takes me on would be doing me an immense service
, so I'm willing to do what I have to do to make it worth that captain's while.
Oh, I currently do not have my passport, I hope to have it within a few weeks. I am a smoker, but only cigars, and I'm more than willing to leave those in a bin when we set off. As for drinking/not drinking, feel free, you won't offend me, but I obviously can't while in the States.
Oh, you can contact me at 214 seven0eight 785five. Text is probably your best bet, if not call and leave a voicemail. I'm terrible about picking up...
