Re: Experienced Crew needed from Tahiti to Fiji

No one can guarantee not getting sea sick. Just like no captain can guarantee a fair passage. Some are prone to sea sick and some are not. But everyone will get sea sick given the right combination. The young ones tend to get seasick more than the old folks. But with the proper medications, most of sea sickness can be controlled or minimized.

Good crew be worth his weight in gold, so the captain can get rest at night and possibly it can save his life when bad things happen. If you want to have reliable crews and not to bail out the day he gets a better offer, it is a small price pay to help out the crew with travel expense and feed them properly.

Sometime, you may get lucky to find find someone without paying. As a prudent sailor, one should not count on luck.

I am just sayin' Good luck.
