BEWARE of Guest Crew! We had excellent luck finding reasonable healthy persons on this and other similar sites, until recently. People lie about their level of experience, they say they´ve been sailing when they have not, they expect to be waited on, they think ships can sail directly into the wind, they don´t understand that when you´re out at sea, far from land, you can´t go shopping or buy your way out or dictate your desires, they get bored and sulk, fight and hide in their cabins brooding, and I´m now afraid to accept people on board unless I have extentive pre-boarding understandings. It is easier, safer, and definately cheaper to simply do our own thing! see full story at my blog dead link removed
