Crew wanted follow up

As a Follow Up...to above solicitation for crew..

Just started to get final plans together..although I've pretty well researched out my itinerary.. My Vessel is a 40 ft custom built 1975 Creekmore..

My intention is to sail from Key West..to Grand Cayman...Then due south to Panama...and then across Pacific.

Ideal crew..is like the guy I met in the laundry room a few days ago at Marina...A retiree , an experienced sailor who loved to sail..who had a great trip sailing through the Canal then on across the Pacific.."Nothing like hearing first hand accounts"..from a good down to earth sailor.

He expected nothing with regard to compensation or transportation...
didn't need that..out there for the fun and the joy of the experience..A real sportsman...

Looking for people with nothing to prove..just laid back sailors...who are easy to get along with..Who are generally finished with their professional activities in life. Personally I had an unlimited licensed...didn't even bother to renew or maintain it..Worked professionally as naval Architect..Westlawn design grad etc...www.afewgoodboats.com my website

Personally, I've sailed in my later years on freighters and tankers as officer..all over the world..as well as smaller commercial vessels types..My sail background dates back to the 60's..on pleasure boats.

Have had the opportunity to go over the vessel the past 2 years and replaced and or fixed what needed to be done..etc..Well founded vessel with all the usual amenities..

If female..has to be a current..well seasoned sailor.. Not looking for couples.

If you are young need to be working or developing a career..or are having problem with supporting yourself, I would suggest a job.?.This is a pleasure venture..The Merchant Marine...compensates professional seaman very well.

I started as Z card ordinary seaman (after Grad School)..retired as 2nd mate unlimited.."It seems more are interested in getting licenses than going out there and just doing the job for a commercial endeavor and enjoying it" LOL

Tom967-

You might want to re-think your website's design a bit. It is almost completely unreadable because you have white font on a light grey background.

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 didn't have the problem with the website. Black text against greyish background.

It depends on what browser you look at it in.

With Mozilla Firefox (what I use 99% of the time) it is white text on a white-ish background, not readable at all unless you use the mouse to highlight the text.

With Internet Explorer it is black text on the same white-ish background, so is easily readable.

I didn't take the time to look at the code and determine why that's the case, but different browsers interpret some html code differently.

Good Luck on the voyage, sounds like a blast!

mabrodis-

Very interesting to see that his site doesn't work in standards compliant browsers, but does work in the one non-compliant browser. Opera, FireFox, Camino, Safari are all standards compliant browser.
