Cam-

I'd have to agree with Billyruffn. The OP is asking the prospective crew to submit a CV without providing his own qualifications or much information about the boat, and seemingly take his word for the condition of the boat and the captain and first mate.

To travel on two-days notice is fairly unreasonable, given how expensive the airline tickets for such a flight generally are. The fact that his isn't willing to feed his crew or help with the expense of a full priced flight... bodes ill for other aspects of the voyage IMHO.

IMHO, this isn't a good idea for either the potential crew or the captain. As billyruffn points out, this really isn't the way good crew gets selected, or a good match is generally made.

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.
