CREW WANTED FOR AUSTRALIA - ASIA (reply before end march)

I have found a position on boat sailing from Australia to Indonesia, then onto Singapore, Malaysia & finally Thailand.

Approx costs & timeline: $15/day covering food & fuel. 4 weeks to Bali (indonesia), 6-8 weeks to Singapore, 8-10 weeks to Malaysia or Thailand.

Requirements: Travel insurance, social pass tourist visa for Indonesia to be arranged beforehand

Normally it is $20/day, but with more people it is less, hence me asking for additional crew.

For more details contact me

James 0421591146,

At $15 per day, the food better be awfully good... That's over $100 per week... and I can provision my boat for a hell of a lot less than that.

Why is it that this sounds suspicious ?

"I have found a position" then goes on to try and sell berths. OK, so it's cheap as chips but me, I don't like the sound of it.

Feels like one of those "I've just found a great new product, you should buy one too" posts.

If people cannot be straight right from the have to wonder don't you ?

Mr. Wombat,

I wondered the same thing at first, but then I read his other post to the Crew Wanted forum (quoted below) and it did seem to jive okay with this one. Or am I naive?
