hello from Indo

I am working in Indo as a Padi dive instructor at the moment and its the dream of dreams to start on the boats. I already have the competant crew and stcw cert.

Does anybody have any info for me on which docks to be walking, what are the most favoured routes to follow and just any other general info would be great.

thanks alot
Darryn Jessup

Re: hello from Indo

Hello Darryn. If you are looking for crew experience go to the local yacht club and put up a note. Say you are keen and willing to learn. If you get a ride pitch in and help aboard the boat. If you don't know, ask. Follow the skipper's instructions. If the skipper turns out to be a nutter, just inform him the position doesn't suit you, leave and seek another position. Racers are often short handed. You wil learn quickly with them but it can be fairly intense. You may be offered a ride on a cruiser. You will need more time off work. Same rules apply. Also ask brokers if they need a hand on delivery trips. You can get experience that way. Just a matter of asking and persisting and then being willing.
