duffypl is on a distinguished road
Last Spring I was able to get a crew position to help an owner move his sailboat from Florida to RI. The willingness of both the captain and the prospective crew member to communicate I believe is the key to success. After our initial introduction on this board we moved on to phone calls and later were fortunate to be able to meet for lunch. We were able to get comfortable with each other before a commitment was made. An important part of that discussion was clearly addressing expectations and responsibilities. Turned out to be a great experience. I hope to find many more.
