Re: Curiosity About These "Crew Wanted" Posts

I'd not likely take an inexperienced/unknown crew offshore without at least a couple of inshore sails or coastal passages of no more than a days duration. Seems to me to be way too many possibilities for conflict.

Anyone who has not done at least a couple off coastal passages needs to do so before going offshore if only to know how their body will react. In my case e.g. I am not prone to sea sickness except that if I head out on an empty stomach then I'm in trouble. Ergo, I know to eat a good breakfast before a passage. These are things you learn as you go on.
