Hawaii to New Zealand

Hi,
There are plenty of boats that are prepared to take on inexperienced crew providing they pay. Just make sure the Skipper is experienced and the boat has all safety equipement and it all works. I have been on plenty of boats that answer yes to my questions only to find that it doesn''t work. In addition to do you have- does it work- do you or can I use it as well must be asked as well. I have been on a boat where the skipper has said no using the rubber ducky if I not going ashore. No using the shower. No using the electric capstan. Cyclone season is 01/11/02 to 01/05/03. Accordingly Sep is the best time - Jan a NO NO. Hope this helps.
