Red face Short notice: crew wanted Miami to Beaufort, NC

Hi,

I want to move my boat north now that storm season is almost upon us. You can tell want a newbie I am by how long I've waited! LOL. I am alone, and my current plan is to hop up the coast inlet to inlet, when the weather permits, and go inside when it doesn't. I will eventually land somewhere in the Chesapeake.

I'd rather go non-stop from Miami, or Ft. Lauderdale, straight to Beaufort, hoping to get a boost from the gulf stream, weather permitting of course. But I need one more person to help me keep watch. I've done a 4 hr on, 4 hr off schedule for a crossing on a friends boat, and it seemed to work well. But I'm too new at this to trust myself to make good judgements after just catnaps.

So ... does anyone out there nearby in Florida have a few days to spare to help me get north?

I'd even be very grateful for help with an offshore to St. Augustine or Mayport/Jacksonville! You can PM me here and I will get right back to you.

Hi,
My wife and I will be free in Miami between the 6th June, and the 16th. We would love to join you for a few days of sailing - we are both experienced, I have a Yachtmaster qualification and 4000 Miles.
If those dates fit with you please let us know and we can give you a call.
Thanks.

Good idea scotty.

My boat is a 1982 Canadian Sailcraft 36', or CS36T. No 1 cabin and a quarter berth plus settee makes a double. Galley has 3 burner propane and a refrigerator (v. small freezer box for ice). One head. 30HP Westerbeke diesel; roller furling genoa; 2 reef in main with lines to cockpit; anchor windlass. I'm a beginner, but those who have sailed her with me say she sails well, balanced, sea-kindly motion.

I pay all expenses on the boat - fuel, docking, provisions - potential crew would get themselves to and from the boat. I'l let you off where you choose (within reason).

Hope that clarifies. If you have further questions, ask and I'll fill you in.

Where are you now? I can help you do a leg up to Jacksonville or St. Augustine area. Send me a PM if interested -- could meet up with you June 11th.

Is the power of 2 hulls with you?
