I''''m looking for a crewing opportunity

I am looking for an opportunity to crew/liveaboard a sailing vessel for a
moderate period of time, say, 2 to 4 weeks, although I can go for longer if necessary. I''m avaiable in September, October and November 2003. I live in Atlanta, so getting to the Atlantic or Gulf coast would be a snap.

I think I''m pretty open minded and can probably adjust to any reasonable
circumstances. One of my primary concerns is to do some offshore sailing. I would be most interested in opportunities to
live and work aboard a sailing vessel in the 37 to 43 foot range.

I have completed an ASA basic keelboat certification course. I owned and sailed on a regular basis a 28'' ODay for 2 years (2000-2002). Therefore I know the a fair amount about sailboats, I can sail and I''m comfortable on deck. I know the importance of keeping an orderly, clean and well maintained vessel.

I can cook - I have several years of professional culinary training and experience, what''s more than this, though, is that I know how to cook on a boat.

I have a 4 year college degree. I most recently worked as a network engineer
for a telecom hardware vendor. I''m not doing that anymore. I''ll be 43 years old in October; I''m physically fit and not overweight. I''ve been married now for 4 years (I think my wife thinks I''m nuts for wanting to do this). I don''t drink to excess; I don''t smoke. I absolutely have the means to pay my own way.

Thanks for taking time to read this email. I''ll happily field any reasonable questions.

Lois - I sail a Sabre 28 out of Kent Island on the Eastern Shore. Please respond now if you would like to cruise the Bay in October. We could day sail prior to get to knoe each other. Bob
