It's funny you mention that

The navy never appealed to me, as I am always striking out looking for adventure. I envision this not being the case in the Navy.

Please send a brief curriculum vitae and I will discuss the possibility of you joining the boat with the captain this evening.
I will need contact information from you, so please send me a private message via this site, as I cannot post my email address here.

Capitanissa,

This certainly sounds like an interesting opportunity.

However, in Mike's place, I would want to see some specifics about the vessel and owners before I submitted my personal credentials and info to someone that claims to be representing them or acting on their behalf. I'm not saying that there is anything untoward happenning here, only that the offer as presented lacks the kind of details we normally associate with authenticity.

My suggestion is to present more concrete details about the vessel and owners, or better still have the owners sign-on here and represent themselves. Alternatively, they can get in touch with Mike via telephone after making a contact here, or you can forward their contact info to Mike directly.

If you need more posts to use our Private Messaging system, you can go into our "Off-Topic" forum and post some gibberish to the "Song Thread" and thereby boost your post-count to the required 10.

your advice is well founded and well taken

Thank you for the advice, it has not fallen on deaf ears. Fortunatly (well, it is now) I have run into some less than honest people doing this before and have figured out how to avoid problems. I am always sure to nail down the real story long before I ever decide to leave. Thank you, honestly.

Michael

You have a point.

Where do you expect to find adventure without canvas??

Fighting pirates in the Navy??

Screw that!!

I can only agree with you; no canvas, no adventure.

I would point out that asking for someone's credentials when your own bona fides have not been established is not a great idea. You are a relative newcomer to this forum and without some more information and verification, for anyone to submit their personal information to you would be foolish.

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.
