Bora Bora bound, need crew, female prefered

I have a 45' Roberts steel cutter. Will be provisioning and doing some refit work this fall with the intent of setting off for points south as the weather turns cold here. Plan on crossing the puddle in mid spring from Mexico. No hard firm itinerary, kind of wanting to go where the wind blows me. Bora Bora is high on my list, but then so is Easter Island, New Zealand and Hudson's Bay.....go figure! Financially independent, long time cruiser, lots of experience, former live-a-board sailor. If you have experience that's nice but not mandatory. I've spent most of my life on boats, so I'm able to teach you what you need to know. Former SCUBA instructor, etc.

If any of this sounds interesting please do email me or PM me.

Regards,

Thomas

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.

Not pathetic Dog. Industrious.

Are you an ascetic or something, dude? Ladies are lovely my good man.

PS - yachts good luck with your hunt. I don't think Dog is interested.

Aging, overweight man seeks female, 18-20, in perfect physical condition, with no knowledge of sailing to travel with him to Bora Bora, Tonga, Easter Island, and Bootyville. Clothing optional, in fact, clothing forbidden. Hideously cramped accommodations still leave room for demeaning acts of servitude upon piles of unwashed laundry. Deaf/mutes preferred to avoid unnecessary talking.

Heh-heh. You make it sound so appealing LFC. Are you in advertising?

Good thing Dog isn't interested, I don't think they allow them in Bora Bora anyways!

LFC no worries, a brand new washing machine will be installed prior to departure! Also, the age range is not quite so restricted and conversation is appreciated.

All The best to you.

Why am I feeling the backstory to Dead Calm here? "Free South Seas cruise, must be attractive and broad-minded..." in my best Sam Neill voice.

Best of luck to finding suitable crew, Thomas! At least you're not named Huey Warner!

I don't think it's pathetic. It's part of the fantasy for some, and if I could find the right lady for an adventure of a life time I'd do it too.
