I am looking for Crew (1 maybe 2) to join me on my Seawind1000 High Performance Cat.
I will be returning to the boat
(on the hard in Virgin Gorda) approximately Feb. 2nd 2017 or soon after. My partner can't join for several months due to family
issues and her car accident
We launched from California
in 2004 and within 5 days, surfed the 21 foot Sunami waves that came from Thailand
. We have 15,000 miles under the keel
after 12 years of sailing 6 months/yr.
We are both musicians and love people, animals
and all things underwater with the exception of the Crown of Thorns critter that fired a missile into my forefinger. I am a Mechanical Engineer
by education, that became a Sales Engr, for Trane Company WI and CA, and scaled down to creating my own company and retiring at 50. I am courageous, honest, trustworthy and kind and wish to have someone similar aboard to get along with. I'm not into toxic sarcasm or egotistical types. But i do carry some amuzement, humor
I would like a person that can assist me for a few days to help outfit the boat
and then launch and sail the VIs. Takes 7 days till we launch.
The itinerary is very flexible and involves roaming about under sail all the time mostly and anchoring
out in Bays and coming to most islands. I want a person that is experienced enough to handle a boat, assist in raising and lower sails
, keep a eye out, be accountable and dependable. I am a young 62 yr old that loves the ocean hanging out on deck
, snorkeling and having good conversations and good food
mostly on board. We don't do cigarettes, drugs or heavy drinking. We do occasionlly hook up with other musicians and get somewhat wasted.
I am called an Amp Nazi because i enjoy saving the environment
. I do so by not wasting gas, water
and electricity, since we run on 2 Solar Panels
. We have successfully run our boat this way even though we have stereo, refig. freezer
, electric winch
that takes a person up mast
, new chart plotter, new sails
2016, new rigging
2014, new dyneema
life lines (no more rust on clothes!) and a new anchor
I play guitar and sing semi-professionally and write music
and hope whoever comes can enjoin in merry making.
Crew will handle travel costs and personal on-shore costs. Food
will be provided if crew is helping me run the boat.
