Hey everyone, thanks for all the advice!
Don't worry about me I'm prepared to take as many precautions as possible. Thanks cruisingdad, you sound like my dad
Ideally I'd love to just be on a relatively small boat as opposed to just working as a cook or whatever. I suppose I could just sort of hang out when I get down there, and see if I can get any connections that way, I just wanted to look around to see if I could possibly arrange anything before hand, and check out the options.
Anyways, I don't really have a set schedule or plan, or even know exactly where I'll be. I do know I'll be around Mexico/Caribbean/Central America and around early November, so if anyone has any connections or info, I would absolutely appreciate it. Posting on here is great or you can mail me directly
