I am probably not going to be available for the ride, so bring your own crew.
Reply with experience and/or references.

P.S. Sure hope this will be a better experience than my last disaster of a crew search here
I am not sure what kind of Capt you are looking for here. does he/she need to have any experience? doesn't sound like it.... I am a 100T Capt and I deliver boats "worldwide" for a living my fees are $300 per day and my crew gets $125, now I do usually run 24/7 and for break downs weather issues I only charge 1/2 rate per day and for this I get a big $12.50 per hour NOT bad for all the years of Sail experience and the expense of licensing and the Responsibility that is put upon me when I deliver a boat weather across the state or to S. America or Europe, Maybe I could go and get a job at the Grocery store as a checker and make MORE money and be home each night with no worries other than what to watch on TV each night. I would suggest you look at paying a capt a decent amount and you will get your boat moved safely.
