Hi all, I am shopping
for my own cruiser right now, but its going slow,... I live in the Northwest and I am getting severe cabin
fever and I need a little adventure preferably in Mexican waters (open to other areas). What I propose is a voyage, or coast hopping journey of about 1 - 3 weeks long, and where I would take up very little room and contribute as much as I can. That includes cost$$ of provisioning
, diesel fuel
, and other marina expenses, and I will assist as crew to whatever extent I can. I expect no travel compensation from you or special arrangements.
I hesitate to submit this post under "crew positions" because I don't think I would meet the expectations of people needing serious crew... and I would rather just ride along and share the experience and certainly provide company and help out where I can.
