Barold-

Getting an STCW 95 certification, as well as CPR, First Aid, and other useful skill certifications will definitely help. Being skilled at navigation, diesel repair and maintenance, electrical system troubleshooting never hurt either.

A good captain or owner will provide the food/provisions and pay for the customs entry/exit fees for his crew, particularly if the crew isn't being paid and has to pay their airfare to the boat and home again. A bad one will expect his crew to work for free and pay for their food and customs fees. The captain or owner should be paying for any costs of maintenance and repairs generally.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
