Having plastic winch handles is an impediment to effectively dispatching either the skipper or a crew member. But maybe that's a good thing.

I've sailed with inexperienced crew before that I contacted through this board, but in general I'm underwhelmed by the dearth of responses or lack of follow-through.

I agree that getting along with someone also is best judged after you've been out there for a few days, when you've been hot and in the sun for quite awhile, i.e., when its already too late to call it quits. My wife, on the other hand, can tell within seconds what it takes me days to find out about people being compatible or not.
