That's been tried several times. The only one I heard of who made it work was Patrick Ellam back in the 70s when the bareboat companies were getting their boats from FL.
Actually, I take that back. I think there's an outfit in the UK doing that; they may have gone under after losing a couple of boats. And I think there's a guy working for R&C in SA doing it. I understand they don't pay well enough to get really experienced people, but they may be a place to start.
