Crew Needed for East coast & Carribean
Hello, My name is Skyler R. Chapman. I am looking for a job primarily as a captain or 1st. Mate. If those positions are unavailable working as a deckhand will be good , too. I also have a very good background in mechanical, electrical , general repair and tender ops. I am also very good with guests as I have 10 years of tourism in the diving and charter business. As a captain and dive instructor I have learned to deal with almost every type of situation and client. Having worked on all types of vessels in several different capacities I see my job is to promote safety and ensure that myself, other crew members and guests have a good time, positive attitude and enjoy themselves while aboard. Please contact me if you have further questions. Thank you.
