Brak also doesn't get back to you. I sent him a pm over a week ago, as a follow up.

I had a dream, I was sailing, I was happy, I was even smiling. Then I looked down and saw that I was on a multi-hull and woke up suddenly in a cold sweat.

If you were a member of a sailing club, there are usually quite experienced members who usually do it for the experience, or the adventure for a reasonable fee not mention to get away from their first mates. Thus far have found the sailing community I've dealt with a lot like this, but then maybe I'm sailing in different waters.

Interesting reading... all the advice and numbers flying around this simple request. I would say Mr Brak has bought into the old adage we use in the car business- "there's an ass for every seat"!!!

Sorry, Freesail - this request was posted a while ago - I had a lot of people reply, so occasionally I miss some. I will check to see what your message is and try to reply.

I can't believe that w/ all this chat, Brak hasn't found someone to deliver his boat! I'm a female w/ over 30 yrs sailing experience since my 'teens, sailed w/ one person from Bermuda to Brazil, many short hauls under my belt to help friends, for pay or not, and could easily handle this boat w/ one other crew on board to get to the Chesapeake. I have my own small (35') boat that I race locally, but would love to help deliver a boat, ESPECIALLY if I could go offshore. No, I'm not a "professional" captain, yes I have a "six pack" license, and have my own insurance. It would be a nice sail! If your boat was up to it....hmmmm....arghh...maybe that's the rub?

Brak-place an ad in Spinsheet-Annapolis. You want a qualified Captain and will need to pay them but usually you can get away with someone crewing for experience. I put in my time crewing for "experience" before I qualified for pay. Usually a Captain will have a list of people to crew and prefers to work with people they know. You might also try calling the sailing schools in Annapolis or some of the charter companies there for names.

And while it can be argued you get what you paid for - Craigslist can be fairly useful if you just want to get a crew and captain it yourself and delegate the duties...but I would try the afore mentioned suggestions and also - talk to a boatyard - they are usually in the know - and if honest - they'll introduce ya to those whom may fit the bill....(I tend to spend time in the yards and get to know who can and the rest of the stories..)

Brak - what's the answer?

You've got all kinds of capable people here willing to get your boat north. So close the loop and tell us what you have decided, please.

I contacted all those who offered their help by private messages. I have someone tentatively ready to deliver my boat. If this does not work for whatever reason - I will privately get back to anyone that may be interested.

Thank you all for your offers and advice!
