You'd like me, I have references
Allan and I share the same attitude. You can contact Capt. Rick Whiting (firstname.lastname@example.org) to verify that I'm a stop-that-man-from-scrubbing-the-galley type of guy. Being stuck in the Midwest (wife with a great job) and growing up in a construction company instructed me in the discipline of work. I like all the same things everyone else likes - free boat rides, tired pirate movie quotes, etc. - but I realized the fundamental lesson of ocean cruising early on: if you don't stay busy you go clinically insane in about 14 hours.
I'm also very much a Missouri Show-Me up front guy who's not afraid to provide a criminal background or even a waiver or indemnity bonding.
In short, if you need a crewman please consider me (and Allan!)
