I have not had any experience on the ocean. I have only sailed Lake Erie in 22' to 34' sailboats. I have never spent the night on the water. I have never entered a harbour that was unknown to me.
I have a lot of experience sailing my 16' Snipe. I have a pretty good understanding of navigation derived from 7 years as an Air Force pilot. I don't smoke or drink, and I like cats.
I'd be willing to help out from NC to FL if you'd like to have me.
