Mermaid seeks co-captain
I tried to e-mail you at your yahoo account but it got rejected - was a good note, too. I am a boat owner/sailor currently on assignment to the Middle East. I will return in June 06 to a totally re-fit boat. I have spent years sailing the Pacific off the west coast of California but have spent the past 5 years sailing the Atlantic and living on my boat.
I have several plans (optional, of course) for the future which may include a trip through the canal and on to Mexico or to spend some extended time sailing south of Puerto Rico. Like you, should I discover the pleasure of sailing with a dedicated companion/first mate, destination decisions will be made together.
I''m formally educated with a degree in Spanish, my B.A. in Linguistics and an M.A. in Socio-Linguistics. Professionally I''ve been in education from the university level to a one year stint as an ESL Coordinator for an elementary school. I''ve been in business for myself a couple times and my last venture had me with a small chain of sports bars/restaurants - a business that always looks more attractive from the seat of a customer than an owner. It eventually became adult day care.
I am single and have been for a number of years. I have one son, grown but still in college taking the "scenic" route. He''s a great son and one that anyone would be proud of - he''s just now finding his "academic stride".
It would be a great pleasure hearing from you - I will await your reply in the event you still have a "crew" vacancy.
ps - I also retain my 100 Ton Captains'' License
