Re: Curiosity About These "Crew Wanted" Posts

Long time past (even before internet) the method of finding a berth was to go where the boats are. For me ,and dozens of others every day ,that meant walking the docks and talking /asking meeting with skippers. Offers to help with maintenance allowed you to strut your stuff. This was important as others were offering to pay and I'd been broke since Istanbul All over the Med ,across and Caribe to Halifax ,I came back to BC to get my own boat.Now I'm on the lookout for that kind of crew, but they keep tripping on their jeans and the nose rings catch on the ratlines.I hope I' not reduced to searching some kind of sailing forum. I mean, what kind of real sailor type would spend their time sitting at a computer searching for reality ?.
