I will need contact information from you, so please send me a private message via this site, as I cannot post my email address here.
This certainly sounds like an interesting opportunity.
However, in Mike's place, I would want to see some specifics about the vessel and owners before I submitted my personal credentials and info to someone that claims to be representing them or acting on their behalf. I'm not saying that there is anything untoward happenning here, only that the offer as presented lacks the kind of details we normally associate with authenticity.
My suggestion is to present more concrete details about the vessel and owners, or better still have the owners sign-on here and represent themselves. Alternatively, they can get in touch with Mike via telephone after making a contact here, or you can forward their contact info to Mike directly.
