Hi Norm,

I''m headed to Lauderdale this weekend to crew a delivery to St. Thomas but I''m always looking for crew positions.

If I might be able to assist you in the future or if you have any questions for me please don''t hesitate to give me a shout.

We are a retired, non-smoking, easy going 50-ish couple interested in assisting with deliveries. We''ve been traveling for about 18 months, mostly in our VW camper, and are currently on the east coast of the US mainland.

Most of our experience is on cats. Last season, we participated in a leisurely six month cruise from Mazatlan, Mexico to Puntarenas, Costa Rica on a Mayotte 47 (reference available). We both assisted with general sailing duties, standing both day and night watches and doing route planning and navigation (we have both CMaps and Nobeltec installed on our laptop). We both participated in cooking and general cleaning. I was in charge of provisioning for a crew of up to 6. Donn participated in general boat maintenance including bottom cleaning, routine engine inspection and maintenance, and the ugly task of rebuilding heads. Our monohull experience includes sailing a 65 foot three-masted schooner, Herrschoff design, from La Paz to Mazatlan in early 2004.

Weve charted catamarans in the Bahamas and enjoyed our brief sails there.

We have taken ASA sailing instruction aboard a Privilege 39 Catamaran, and hold ASA certifications in Basic Keelboating, Catamaran Sailing, and Bareboat Cruising. We also hold USCG Aux certification in Advanced Coastal Navigation. We hold HAM tech licenses and are NAUI certified divers. We can send you a full resume and copies of passports if youd like.

Were looking to buy a boat of our own, and more experience before making our purchase. If you think we might make a good match, we''d love to hear from you.

Sandi and Donn

Hi Norm,
I''d be very interested in crewing for you on a delivery. I''m a 23 year old electrical engineer, good with my hands, hard working and easy to get along with. While I have no previous experience as crew, I greatly desire to sail, own my own boat (a flicka), and believe I would make a valuable addition to any crew. If you have a need for any crew I can be reached at I live in virginia but could travel anywhere to meet a boat. If I could provide you with any more information please let me know.
