I would like to help you but I will be sailing that way at that time. Unfortunate, yes, as a lobster and a scientist I feel I have much to offer.

David/Jacques-

Considering the OP is a year old, he's probably already found crew, been and come back.

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.

Billy-

From that thread, here are the two relevant posts of mine, the link Cam mentions is in the second post:

The boat should be seaworthy, relatively clean and with all the necessary safety gear aboard.

This doesn't appear to be the case, at least from what I've read of Kacper's account of his trip. The people who showed up to crew were asked to help do work that by all rights should have been done before they showed up. They didn't sign up to be boat drudges or boatyard staff... yet that is what appears to have happened. The boat wasn't ready to go... not even close.

Now this isn't to say that they should expect to have an easy ride of it... if maintenance or repairs are required during the voyage, I would expect that they would assist to the best of their abilities. If the head clogs two days out... then they have no right to expect that the captain will repair the head without assistance.

There's a big difference between working on a boat during a voyage, and doing drudge work in a boatyard to get it ready for the voyage. When I had to prep my boat and paint the bottom, the people who helped me out were people who crew with me regularly. The people who only crew ocassionally weren't asked to help do the work—the ones who were asked have a vested interest in doing so—their sweat equity is the reason they have open access to the boat.

Working 9:00 to 6:00 and taking two hours off to paint a shark on the keel, means that less than a standard business day was spent working on the boat. From Kacper's thread, located here, seven full days were spent cleaning up the boat and doing routine maintenance, versus prepping the boat for a voyage. Installing a new engine and re-building the exhaust system for it does not qualify as prepping a boat for a voyage—that is pure boat yard work, pure and simple. Comparing a day's work of prepping the boat—stowing the supplies and putting on the anchor roller, windlass and dodger—to re-powering and repainting a boat isn't really sensible. Anyone crewing on a boat would expect to help stow supplies, mount dodgers, and such, but repowering and repainting the entire boat is way beyond what is reasonable to expect.
