- Hello Stranger,
I am from Michigan, but am on a 1 year sabbatical from General Motors traveling Guatemala to Patagonia and Back (June 2015 - 2016). Currently in Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico (March 2016) aboard a 30 ft monohull, but able to meet anywhere to gain some good, serious experience hopefully in the Americas or the South Pacific. Looking to get involved in all aspects of the boat. Not amazing mechanic or cook - but ok and would love to help out where needed.
I have 2 summers sailing experience on the great lakes - mostly a deck hand for regattas on NA40s. In August, I got to spend 8 days on a sloop 47 from Portobelo, Panama to Cartagena, Columbia and enjoyed it immensely. I've got a pilots license which lends itself to basic understanding of nav/wx/physics.
A bit about myself:
I love anything to do with the water except for drowning. PADI rescue diver – with dry suit cert. Sailing/Surfing/Swiming/Snorkeling/Diving are great, would love to get more experience free diving/windsurfing/spear fishing. I love food, and not afraid to help in the kitchen.
I'm a 30 yr old male mechanical engineer that has been lucky enough to spend time traveling the world. I backpacked East around the world from Florida to Alaska in 2009 with 2 others (14 months living 24/7 with two others in often cramped spaces). Easy going - and flexible.
I'm pretty mellow, love music, and a good sunrise.
Hope to hear from you.
