Maybe you should re-word the original post....itís not clear if your picking up the expenses or if your expecting the individual joining you to pay their way.

Re: want experienced sailer

Considering most posts on here the owner does pay your expenses, that is more the norm.

You're post wasn't clear.

Seems like you are the one seeking help, requiring a skilled and experienced crew person. Sounds like it should perhaps be a PAID position, and here you are belittling someone who only wants travel expenses to come to your aid.

Good luck!

Very disrespectful. You're looking for experienced, skilled help, and hoping to find someone willing to spend their own money to give it to you gratis, just for the experience of it?

If you read his previous posts he never says thank you and rarely engages in a conversation. Just puts it out there and seems to move on.

May be the OP is looking for crews from Hell. Any competent crews would not want to come on board to sail with a boat owner from Hell. :P

tjandoverguy, Before I send our pics, the wife wants to know if you are serving 3 meals per day or just breakfast? We're good with just breakfast, but the pay would be higher than the normal experienced crew fee, no?
