Smile Tampa to Panama

Hi everyone , i thought i would put it out there , as i am planning a trip around the Carribean from Tampa clearwater too Panama.The Drama i have is that i myself have plently of boat experience in power boats but have zip sailing experince and have brought a Morgan 384.So i,m looking for someone that has sailing experience , enjoys diving and swimming and enjoys different cultures and some one that doesn,t easily get stressed.There is two of us and we both enjoy a drink or two but are right into our diving and surfing and island hopping.I am originally from New Zealand and my mate is from Australia and we are both Electricians that work in the mines.Our plan is to finally get back to OZ and our carribean trip is our 1st leg.The Yacht is a morgan 38 ft and sleeps 5 .It has auto pilot and has a 2kw generator , It has radar , gps and wind and solar power generation.We have our own scuba tank compressor , has all the lastest safety equipment.
If anyone one is interested drop us a email or add to this post

re: Tampa to Panama

Hello,

Although I do not have enough experience to captain your boat, I have crewing experience and also love diving. If you want extra crew and a dive partner, please let me know! I don't smoke or do drugs, but I enjoy a good drink now and then as well!

Cheers,

Chris

re: Tampa to Panama

You say you are planning. When do you actually plan to leave?

By the way, I'm in the Tampa Bay area and could give you some insight into the Caribbean. (Heading down there next week for a charter.)

re: Tampa to Panama

I also have limited sailing experience but would probably be a good fit otherwise so if you are in need of crew let me know and give us some more details on your trip and when you will be leaving.

re: Tampa to Panama

I talked to the broker a long time ago about this. He was trying to move the boat within a few days, so it's probably delivered by now.

I am interested. I just sent you a private message. You didn't provide an email address, so if you will reply to my private message with an email address, I will send you more information about myself.

Re: Tampa to Panama

If you leave in Nov or Dec I can go. April, May puts you making the passage in hurricane season. Not good.
