I have been casually travelling Central America
, since finishing travels in Peru
. Have occasional sailing experience over the years in Australia
, NZ and South Africa
but not very much, so I did 7 days saling and skipper license
I am 45 year old man. I'd describe my nationality as "Earthling" though originally Scottish, grew up in NZ and South Africa
, then lived many other places since. I recently sold
up my life in Slovenia
to travel and sail. I've travelled extensively by foot, motorbike, car, RV and plane, now only want to be on the ocean.
I had planned to buy a Neel trimaran
but suffered a financial disaster in 2021 so now I am just looking to join someone else as a crew member
on their boat
; to be on the water
and gain more experience.
Not too worried about destination
, but I am about to be in Georgia
, US, from 23rd January in the hope of finding someone that needs crew, whether sailing up and down the coast, heading for Europe
or the Caribean....I'm easy.
Just putting feelers out to see if there are any options.
Multi-telented, useful-person. I am a decent cook, and a petrol-head/gear-head who has built a few custom V8 and turbo cars, bikes, and even a house-bus (basically, I am handy and competent).
An ex-IT engineer
(solutions specialist) but I also studied motor-mechanics and electrical
which I applied to my hobbies. Have done custom bodywork and fiberglassing too, as well as home renovation
(tiling, joinery, flooring
etc), so I am confident to put my hand to most things.
I am pretty chill and easy going. I am outgoing , but I am becoming less extroverted the older I get, and prefer serenity and nature than loudness and parties (I used to be a DJ for about 10 years as a side-thing, maybe it made me sick of party life; or maybe it is just age). Grew up in a small town in Scotland
and New Zealand
, so could be that too; back to it.
If that sounds like someone you would not get sick of, then consider me if you are looking for crew.....I can also cook prety well and am very clean & tidy, a thorough cleaner and happy to go overboard
to brush/scrape the hull
