looking for boat from NE to Costa Rica

I am an enthusiastic eighteen-year old taking a year off before college and I'm looking to crew on a boat that is headed for the carribean. I have sailing experience and I work as a sailing insructor. Please contact me if you are interested in my services.

Sounds like you're looking to get paid to crew... that doesn't happen all that often... there is often far more available crew, especially in the carribean, than there are openings on boats... and most will work for free, or for the cost of feeding them on the passage.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I am not expecting to get paid to crew, and I am sorry if it seemed that way. I am willing to work just for the passage or even to pay a small fee for the opportunity.

Might be worth looking at http://www.sailopo.com/ which is a service that matches people looking to make passages with boats making such passages IIRC.

There's also a few good crew-posting bulletin boards on the web. I'll see if I can dig them up for you.
