previous post about bad experience when going to crew on a boat

there was a post here over the fall about a kid who went to crew on a boat, traveled there and then had a bad experience with the captain. boat was not ready and he and other crew had to work for several days to prepair boat then eventually left because of poor planning.
i tried to find this post but am not able to find it any more. can someone link it to me.

Jason-

The thread you're thinking of is probably the one started by Kacper, which you can read here. It was a post that started as a response to this crew wanted thread by CaptKris.

I hope that helps.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

This sort of thing is all too common, unfortunately.

If you really think about this, answering an ad and deciding to commit yourself to a longish period of time in a very confined space with someone you have no idea about is kind of scary, don't you think????

Those that went bad BEFORE departure are the lucky ones.

You can learn alot about whether or not you have the stomach for it... in some cases it is about the adventure and having a story to tell... others just want a reasonable experience and not worried about the story...

Volunteer to sail with other boats during a locally sponsored regatta and you'll soon learn that either you can adapt to others sailing style or that you'd prefer not to go that route...

Slightly OT... but since Rick posted on this...

This is the very reason my father told me to go on a long car trip with any woman you're very serious about possibly marrying, preferably in the summer with the A/C broken.

My late wife and I went on a 3,000 mile road trip that lasted 20 days... and got engaged during the trip. I spoke to her 30 minutes after leaving her in Seattle, and the first words out her mouth were "I miss you already." So, his advice is pretty sound.
