I'm not sure if this is the right place for this thread, but I'll start here. I am sailing down to the Caribbean in a few weeks, headed for St Thomas, but I'm sailing on someone else's boat.

I am a licensed captain, and I have been investigating and conversing with several companies down in St Thomas and St John who are hiring captains and for whom I may be a good match for the tourist season.

My question is this: An apartment seems rather expensive there. Is there opportunity to rent bunk space on board a boat? Is it cheaper than living in an apartment? How do I go about finding these boats?

Anybody have any other suggestions where to look?
