Crew needed Hyannis MA to Florida

Cape Cod to Florida--Crew wanted
________________________________________

Starting around Oct 6th, I'll be taking my Tartan 37 from Hyannis, MA to Florida. I've made this trip 6 times, and it usually takes about 3 weeks depending on weather.

I usually go outside from Cape Cod to Norfolk, VA and then inside around Cape Hatteras, and then outside again as weather allows.

You should know a bit about sailing, not get easily seasick, be able to cook a little and stand watches. You need to be a non-smoker, a light drinker, and have a sense of humor.

Your expenses will be for your transportation to and from the boat and your share of the food.

You can e-mail me at sailingcrew08 at gmail dot com

Hope to hear from you,

Bill

Re: Crew needed Hyannis MA to Florida

Curious as to why you would not supply food?
I'm at sea, helping to move your boat many miles, I'm really puzzled about the food issue??
Thanks.

A hungry crew tends to obey orders more quickly.

Re: Crew needed Hyannis MA to Florida

I guess times are changing. I was always taught a skipper is responsible for taking care of his/her crew.

Re: Crew needed Hyannis MA to Florida

Gezz, what's the big deal about sharing food expensives?
If I could get away for 3 weeks, I'd sign up in a heartbeat

I'm not happy unless I'm complaining about something.
I'm having a very good day!

You guys are kidding right? Did you read the OP carefully, or at all?

You should have been able to deduce that there will be food on board that you will help to pay for. You also get to pay your own transportation to and from departure and arrival ports. This is a fairly standard arrangement.

Some questions that might be a bit more pertinent:
- Sloop or ketch rigged T37?
- T37C or newer T3700?
- Assume auto pilot?
- Radar equipped?
- SAT phone or SSB?

I'd be a perfect fit except for the smoking, drinking and sense of humour requirements.

Thanks for the reading instructions, most helpful.

If I'm HELPING someone move their boat, without pay, the 'fairly standard agreement' on the boats I've moved include food at the owners cost.

I help move boats on a regular basis.
To me, not supplying food goes to the owners 'state of being' if you will.

Re: Crew needed Hyannis MA to Florida

I agree with MISFITS, if I could get away for 3 weeks, I would be happy to pay my own meals/transportation.

Anyone complaining about the absence of free meals is either a professional sailor, or whining.

Your average weekend sailor would be happy just with the gained experience.
