Crew to New Zealand, Australia

Hi there my name is Jake. I am 24 yrs old, I graduated college and am looking to take the furthest possible journey, to roam and enjoy life. I have experience sailing in the Caribbean and off the coast of Maine, though Im not in any way certified. I am studying up on the things I don't already know, I am a hard worker and a fast learner. I have done night watches and very basic navigation, and can do cpr, but there is much I hope to learn along the way.

If you know any vessels heading that direction, I am all ears I live in Boston, but could leave from either coast if necessary. I would love to do a work exchange. I can tutor, do construction, cook, teach German or music, and other more menial work. I dont have much money, but I work very hard and well. Let me know if you know anything, thanks,

Do you have any certifications, like first aid, or any skills that might make you more desireable as crew, such as an STCW 95 or the ability to navigate, stand a night watch, do dead reckoning, know how to repair/diagnose diesel engines, etc???

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.
