Those certifications will definitely improve your value as a crew... so you really need to mention them. I'd highly recommend you learn how to plot a course, do dead reckoning and such, as they are necessary skills to have.

This is a little early for boats leaving for Hawaii. If you're serious about crewing to get to Hawaii, you might want to consider trying to crew for some of the race boats that go there... the Transpac and several other races use the Hawaiian islands as a waypoint, stopover or destination.

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.
