Re: offshore passage opportunites
Met Hank Schmidt, founder of OPO a few times a number of years ago when he was 1st getting OPO under way. He is local out of
Huntington. Seemed serious and careful about both crew and boats
he put together. Believe he still organizes repositioning a fleet of
large Swans from Newport to the caribbean every spring and fall.
As I remember it OPO crew members would have better crewing
opportunities as their OPO resume grew.
Call/contact Hank, as I remember he is/was a delivery captain,
and was happy to spend time and explain things.
