Crew available, Florida to Marsh HArbor Bahamas
OK, I've used various means to get back and forth to Marsh Harbor including my own 28' sailboat, various airlines, taxi/ferry/taxi/MV Discovery, etc but now the cheap air carriers are temporarily gone so I'm looking for someone going from FL to Marsh Harbor who needs an experienced crew member one way.

Age: 56
Very low standards of comfort
Obsession with navigation, paper charts, etc.
I love diesel engines
I'll pay for my food and help out with diesel
Will provide my own safety gear including VHF, EPIRB, tethers, etc.

Ideal time would be January 2013 but I am open for almost any time before MAy 2013

25 yrs experience sailing smaller boats.

I will be sailing my own boat from Marsh Harbor south to Georgetown

You got to love it.
I may be going in March to the Exumas but with an attitude like that I can divert to the Abacos. If you don't get a ride pm me.

Hey there FrogMan. I am headed that way As soon as I can in early January. Currently the boat is in Charleston, I am in Costa Rica and soon, I guess we'll all be in the Bahamas. I am trying to get my posts up so I can PM with folks. If you don't hear from me, I didn't post enough. You sound like a great mate. talk to you soon

Re: Crew available, Florida to Marsh HArbor Bahamas
Hmmm, not sure why the e-mails didn't make it. Yes, I can meet in St Augustine. How long will it take you to get to W. Palm from St Augustine?
Any thoughts if you will check in at West End or at Green Turtle?
I found tonight you had left a message on my work machine but it was late so I'll answer tomorrow.

For others, I intend multiple trips so if you also need crew, keep me in mind. I am flexible as to times.
