so you want emergency voyage help and expect someone to fly into bermuda at their own unpaid expense and then pay you $1800 plus bear additional fees and costs? that's some hell of a package you put together.. good luck finding someone to buy it..you might want to start by offering their airfare and providing provisioning lol

Well said. OP expects someone to drop everything, fly to Bermuda to help owner to cross to Azores on three days notice AND pay for the privilege?

Not bloody likely.

Plus, this illusory 'emergency' crew, after shelling out $1800, must trust - sight unseen - that this Najad 39 is, in fact, properly equipped and sound for a transatlantic, and that the captain does have requisite experience... :rolleyes:

Sorry to be so dubious,

I dunno, Boatie... I might pay for a chance to crew with you. :smitten:

How does a case of craft Canadian beer sound? :cheers:

Mostly, though, I want to check out your curry-making skills!

Changing slips later this afternoon. Cost is only $1,000. Bring alcohol.

I agree; talk about cheapskates. First, unless you are a licensed captain, it is illegal (at least in the US and some other countries) to charge anyone to be on your boat.

I echoe my colleagues comments: good luck finding anyone competent.

Thanks for this post. I'm up to my elbows in sewage hoses today and needed a good laugh. Good luck!
