Part One, Dear Shipmates (introduction):


Thank you for your time and consideration reading this. I've had nearly a lifelong interest in sailing and being around the water. Around the age of 12 I built a removable Marconi rig assembly which fit over the oar locks in my Dad's small Jon boat. I have read much material and watched many training videos and seek opportunities to learn more by way of experience. I reason well and learn quickly, and am responsible and reliable. I enjoy life and have a good sense of humor, but absolutely know when to be serious. I am always learning and seeking knowledge and wisdom. Multidisciplinary studying is an activity I enjoy and helps me be well-rounded, but there is so much more to learn!

I don't do drugs, have no use for them or the people that abuse them. I don't drink excessively, usually less than a drink per month, though sometimes a little more. I don't smoke cigarettes because they stink, but I may smoke a pipe or a good cigar occasionally.

I value integrity and honestly, hard work and good discipline, and honor. I try to be clear in my expectations and communications and hope that being upfront will avoid misunderstandings.

Part Two, A little about myself, my interests and my plans:

After high school I went into the navy where I learned electronics (communications, HF, VHF, UHF, FM repeaters, servos, TACAN, ship's inertial navigation system) and nuclear reactors. After the navy I went to work in a factory as an electronics technician troubleshooting computers and programming automated test equipment. I soon founded and operated an IT company specializing in systems integration and in most aspects of the IT field. After over twenty years doing that I changed careers and became first an emergency medical technician and then a registered trauma nurse. I became a travel nurse working in emergency departments, intensive care units, and hospital administration.

I can cook, was a single parent of two children. As a travel nurse I pulled a 32' (9.75 m) travel trailer and have lived in it for several years now; I am accustomed to tight spaces and watching the house battery level. I also watch very closely my water consumption.

I remain involved in technology and hold an extra class amateur radio license, General Radiotelephone Operator License + RADAR, and a GMDSS Maintainer/Operator + RADAR license. I use both voice and digital modes in communication, both direct and through WinLink. I've trained and operated in Navy MARS (Military Auxiliary Radio System) and am currently our squadron's communications (and Search & Rescue, Emergency Services, and Health Services) officer in the Civil Air Patrol (civilian part of the Air Force). I am also a net control operator for the National Weather Service and MARS. I am the COML (Communications Unit Leader, a FEMA/OEC designation) for our state's All-Hazards Incident Management Team, Type III. I recently took courses at a local college to update and refresh my skills with computers and IT, including networking, virtual servers, exchange, SQL servers, etc.

I've had a nearly lifelong interest in sailing and grew up in the water. I have a PADI (SCUBA) open-water certificate.

I'm pretty good at understanding mechanical, plumbing, and electronic equipment and how they work or don't. I can use tools and test equipment, do most all of my own maintenance on the automobiles, house, travel trailer, and their systems (electrical, plumbing, A/C, and appliances). I have an EPA 609 refrigerant license for MVAC. I have completed ground school for an aircraft pilot, which included navigation, and I can read a chart. I have used dead reckoning and electronic navigation for aircraft navigation and studied navigation for boats.

Back in younger days, when I was invincible, I frequently climbed a 21 m tower to see above the trees. I'm smarter now and haven't climbed in quite a while, but I expect that climbing a mast with proper equipment would be as appealing today as it was then.

Part Three, My motivation and reasons to crew on a boat:

In 2010 I bought a salvage and stripped trimaran cutter, my first boat. With the help of a hired captain it was "rescued" and moved from it's stranding on the ICW in Myrtle Beach via the ICW to a boatyard where it was hauled and sits, awaiting money for repairs and refitting. I want to gain the experience of cruising and live-aboard life so that when my boat is ready I will be too. The only sea experience I currently have is the three days that we moved my boat on the ICW, some day trips off shore for SCUBA adventure, and the navy if that counts. I'm ready for some more!

Fair winds,

Craig AE6E
