I think maybe there are a lot of people who are commenting without reading the ENTIRE thread...
Ease up here. And oh by the way I have read the entire thread so spare me the haughty attitude

A sign of maturity is to filter through the comments without having to answer each one in a confrontational tone

It was you who posted on the internet. In doing that you should expect a certain amount of comments on your posts. When people comment and they don't share your opinion or give advice which doesn't agree with you to call them "haters"

is a bit much don't you think. That coupled with your argumentative tone to everyone and shows a lack of maturity. I would think three times about getting on a 50 ft. boat with some like that.

As far as the advice given by others, I would concur with it for the most part. Sounds to me like you want a few warm bodies who pay for themselves. You are acting like you are doing "crew" a favor by taking them. I have found by taking care of your crew shows appreciation and you get a different caliber person.

I would look at this posting carefully and pass for the following reasons. One paying for even their own food and two, your controlling attitude as evidenced here which I wouldn't want to sign on to do any passage with let alone the Pacific, even 150 miles.
