Re: maine to bahamas and back
Yours is at least partly a cautionary tale about crew and alcohol on board. I never found it a good idea to have alcohol on board while sailing a long distance, but the one time I did have it on board, the results were the same as yours,
As for crew, it is an interesting experience you had. Hopefully, those who seek crew on this board and others will rethink their strategy when they see your post and only use crew who have experience.
