As Cam has pointed out, the thread was dead for over four years... Might want to check dates before replying.

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 particular delivery captain; is trying to attract delivery crew that will pay him
US$35/day when he is in fact receiving a crew allowance from the owner; left one
port without paying for diesel; left another after puting a hole in a boat and
failed to notify anyone; drank excessively during the delivery of a 70'' luxury
sail boat; screamed at his crew; helped himself to their personal items; endangered
his crew sometimes resulting in injury; refused to feed a crew member for two days;
now two months overdue on the delivery to Singapore; has burned his way through six
crew members since leaving LA in November, and so the story goes on.

I will further add to my defence the additional problems this person SANDRA STEVENS from New Zealand caused.
The trip was shortly after the 9/11 attacks. For some reason at a bar in Fiji on the foreshore with the barmaid close by She makes a statement in a reasonably loud voice to me that in her opinion a another crew member a USA male was a MUSLIM-ON A MISSION FROM GOD- AND A MEMBER WITH Al QAEDA . Later I saw her speaking to to Elder FIJI chiefs in a group and accordingly I approached with the intention to join in for drinks. However as soon as she spotted us (the so called Al Qaeda crew member) she bows her head and quickly does an exit. At arriving at the table we where asked if we where Muslims.
On leaving Fiji and arriving at Noumea Guess what = Customs French New Caledonia intelligence officers - drug dogs- explosive sniffers dogs the whole 9 yards waiting.Ordered to close all hatches while the dogs do a search pass through the Boat. Passports all inspected and I was advised I had the option with the crew member from the US Local lock up or House arrest at the Marina provided we did not venture from the marina enclosure will two intelligence agents posted 24/24 hrs until he could get clearance from the FBI and the CIA, while she packs her bags and goes TIKI touring on another vessel with no mention when she was returning or continuing as a crew member. 7 days later I was advised clearance had been received from the FBI and CIA via Sydney with an apology for the inconvenience caused.

I have since had a comment from a third party once you are in the FBI and CIA files no one ever gets around to removing them.

Was not allowed to anchor in the harbour to save costs. 8 days Marina Costs and no site seeing - only escorts to the Marina toilets by Intelligence officers and the talk of the whole yachting fraternity at the marina.

If any body wants to do the dirty on a Skipper and cause HAVOC Just repeat her statement in the right place and He Presto. YOU would have to be pretty sick in the head though. Some seasons later happen to be in TAHITI and clearing customs and the SAME Sandra Stevens is in full view having issues with the Skipper she was crew with at Customs again.

Persons claiming to be Sandra Stevens.

At no time did I advertise for crew asking $35 per day. All crew members where free on board with first meal at each port on entry on the Boat and the last meal at each port before departure was on the boat. [e.g at restaurant with boat paying ]
I suspect this was stated to get the reaction paying crew - hard done by $35 touch from readers.

I would also state the Head of the Noumea security services gave the vessel special free clearance to leave port with her not on board or having to provide return airfares to her home port. That in itself should tell you something you fine prosecutors.

Want head aches : Have crew member: SAM on board.

And I'm supposed to be the BAD guy?

I suppose you could even post your feelings - without crossing the line into libel - on some cruising web sites.

Just a thought.

Try The French security intelligence Service.
