God! No wonder we have so few lady sailors visiting this site. Even if the OP was fishing, there's a tiny chance that it was a genuine request. What will the others who lurk think of the site manners?

Exclamation

Greetings,

I am preparing to leave the Florida Keys this month, heading back to the Bahamas and eastern Caribbean. Of course, all plans are tentative and subject to change at the whim of the wind and the sea, but planning to be in Trinidad/Tobago by next July, safely out of the path of the 2008 hurricane season.

The previous crewmate stayed aboard for 9 months, and reluctantly returned to her old life/friends/family in October.

I'm a single male, licensed captain/100 ton ship's master with 14 years experience. I am looking for good company and an extra set of hands. I'm 46, in excellent health and extremely low-keyed and patient. I keep a clean, neat, organized ship. My voyages are always stress free and well planned.

The boat, S.V. Eros, is a 52 foot trimaran cutter. Lots of room, fast (12-14 knots) and very stable (no heeling). She has four queen size beds, although one is currently used for provision storage. If you have scuba/snorkle gear, bring it along. Other than that, just your clothes and a camera are necessary, everything else is already aboard.

Once I leave Florida, internet will be spotty, please contact me by the 15th if you are interested. Then we can work out future communications. Let me know your schedule, and we can discuss nearby airports.

-MiKe

I agree with Idiens.... and I must say I'm far from being a moral compass!


So, let me see if I understand this... if guys want to crew it's cool.. when women do the assumption is they are seekng "other" types of activities? Talk about double standards! shame on you guys! tsk tsk.

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.

Seriously... this is one forum that should be heavily policed by the moderators. Every time I see a woman post that they are looking to crew, people start making crude remarks. I know men are pigs (I should know since I am one and, according to friends, neighbors and my wife, can be the biggest pig in the world) but it would be nice if we could keep this forum fairly civil.

Well said Labatt... and I'll agree that you're a pig... My parents raised me to be an agreeable person.
