I would be more than entertained, as I am now.

As soon as you "seasoned" sailors saw my post - YOU FAILED TO READ IT and ADDRESS IT, instead you chose to somehow discredit it and attack it.

You are for sure GOOD sailors and GOOD people.
Friend, I wouldn't sail with you on a bet. Although it would be fun to sail against you.

So far it attracted one drunk redneck in need of shower and uniform, one lawyer in need of epirb to play with and a cohort of supporting them offshore, ukhm, cheasapeake lions.

As far I counted one post related to the topic.

Blanc, I think what Sawingknots is saying, although rather harshly, is - an experienced crew that you wish for and need (your life may depend on them) are usually paid in some way. In return for their service, what are you offering an experienced crew? A long, wet, cold ride? That ain't going to get it. I have done that trip in the past and this time of year you will go thru at least one blow if not a storm.

I bet you are right, I will hit some easterly 30ies, but the redneck not only seems to be rude and dumb, he simply does not read the post. If anyone feels he/she would fit in this ride, such person should answer the call.

The drunk for sure is not fit, so why would he answer ? He wants to be fed, sleep, drink, get paid, get tickets, get "incidentials" monies. Maybe I should buy him HPX suit so he is not cold ?

I do not offer that and it is clearly stated here. He apparently made it his habit to troll here, because he has plenty of time - nobody wants to give him any ride.

Maybe he discouraged somebody to join this trip, but for sure he discouraged everyone to take him on deck on any other.

I would never let twerp like that set foot on my deck.
