My friend and I are looking to join a crew starting around mid November. We're currently in Costa Rica. If you make up around here or Panama and still need a crew, we'd love to join you for your trip to DR. bethdove at gmail dot com Thanks!
Have been away from this forum for sometime so my reply may not help in any way.
However, if interested my Venezia is now chartering and viewable on web. Suggest you google 'Cattitude' based in Hervey Bay.
Hope you have a great day
