"Good crew" looking for a Florida boat. Female, 48, professional

I'm "good crew," with references, looking to get on a good boat for anywhere from a week to a few months. I'm based in Florida, close to Lauderdale, a female, 48, professional. (I double as a writer/editor and have been landlocked too long.) Too old for a party boat but fit, happy and healthy. I pull my weight and can be relied upon.
I have a fair amount of blue water experience. The last time I posted on this forum I was looking for crew for my 41 foot Morgan.
Now I'm looking to crew on your boat and much happier, let me just say. What's out there?

Good luck.

It would help if you said what other skills do you bring as crew? CPR, advanced first aid, navigation, able to stand a night watch, can you cook in a galley, etc...

What happened to your Morgan?

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.

Excellent point, SailingDog. Good all-round crew. Stand watches, able to navigate, happy to assist in regular boat tasks. I've captained plenty but not looking for that role. CPR not current, quasi-competent in the galley. (Better navigator.)

The Morgan was knocked down in drydock in Turks & Caicos during Hurricane Ike. Her hull was cracked but some guys bought her from the insurance company and she sails again. Great boat.

Pffft...you're never too old to party. Sorry to hear about your Morgan.

Hope you find what you are looking for, but tell me. What's to love about Havana? I've always wanted to visit myself but mostly to see a place that has not been innundated w tourists.

My formula for living is quite simple. I get up in the morning and I go to bed at night. In between, I occupy myself as best I can.

My drinking and sailing friend, Billy Beavers, is always looking for crew on his Tartan 34. He does all the local races including Key West and periodically does week-long cruises.

He is very experienced with hundreds of races and thousands of sea miles.

Check with Coconut Grove Sailing Club to contact him where he is a well known member.
