If you are looking to connect with a boat that needs crew, you should inventory the skills that you bring to the table. It seems that you are not familiar with sailing. Are there any maintenance tasks that you are familiar with: carpentry, engines, electrical, refrigeration, etc? Can you cook?

Have you been aboard a boat of any kind for any length of time? If so, identifying that would help in your search. If not, I doubt many are going to take the chance you are susceptible to sea sickness and want off.

also perhaps personal messages better...yes a lifestyle decision, but to find out if i am able to enable your ship or boats trip to be more successful and not be a negative, if you know a specific boat let me know...and if you know sites that can accomodate a newbie please let me know. sincerely thank you!!!

I assume you are keeping an eye on this forum:

Not going to be a lot of call for body piercings on passage. kidding.....

I've known more than one that has agreed to be the ship's cook and housekeeper, in exchange for passage. Most recently, I've even heard of them being paid. A delivery crew may be your best chance. Bar tenders near marinas always seem to know who to talk to.
