61' Bruce Robert ketch

Sailing program: One month to go from Miami
to Aruba through the Bahamas
We will avoid sailing in bad weather.
crew: 2 males, 1 female, all in their 50s, + 2 cats
You will have your own cabin
Boat's expenses are covered by the Captain
We share the cost of the food/drinks.
You are responsible for your personal expenses including eventual visas.
Our female crew member
is a great French cook.
Be aware that for the few passages we will have to go through, we will steer the boat as there is no auto-pilot.
Howdy and Ahoy!
I saw your post that you are still looking for crew. I first noticed your "Crew Wanted" posts some weeks ago.
I am currently available to help you for as long as 30-45 days or for the duration of your voyage or some part of it as you make your way to Aruba.
I am available now on short notice (in as little as 24 hours),
my seabags are packed, I have my own Personal Safety Gear
(PFD, Harness, etc.), I have a valid American Passport, I have a few thousand miles of Blue Water Offshore
experience and years of sailing experience, I have been certified by ASA
in several levels, and I have time flexibility to help.
I will also be available as Experienced Crew during all of December 2016 and all of 2017 too (unless booked on another boat).
Some conditions apply, which I will cover in a Private Message.
You can read a brief description about me in my CF Profile About Me Page, and I have much more additional information including many testimonials about my character and personality and trustworthiness I can show you online if you are interested.
