RangerE You''ve got a great attitude Snods... keep it up. Don''t let rantings from a "Pro" deter you from your cruising/crewing goals.

In response to the "Lisesced Perfeshional" Captain who is struggling to find work. Competence or lack of it is usually a contributing factor.

snods57 Morning N,

Just read you message on sailnet. I''d be most interested in discussing crewing for you for at least a couple legs of the trip. If you''d like, you can check out my personal page on sailnet under "Snods57" for more info regarding me along with a couple of photos. Thanks for the message. I look forward to discussing the trip at length. Please feel free to call at any time.

Mary Wallach, RN

snods57 Dear Troyaux,

Thank you so much for the support you offered. Some of the coments pertaining to my original board message made me feel foolish for writing the thing in the first place. Truth is that I enjoyed the passage so much that I wanted to tell other folks who sail about it.

I have managed to ignore the negative comments and plan to keep on building skills until I get it completely right. I''m a tenacious lady.

Thanks so much again,

troyaux Mary, you just keep right on track with your thoughts and forget the griper that can''t get work (most likely because of his grumpy disposition)

I''d rather have a pleasant enthusiastic rookie aboard as crew anyday over a obnoxious know it all. You just ignore that fellow and keep getting out there

You had best understand that no one gets to be a seasoned sailor by sitting on the dock. Also, this is a friendlt site ...if you don''t want to be friendly - join a powerboaters site!

snods57 To Maciavelli:

Ok. So here''s the real truth about this passage.

My navigation skills are just a tad, shall we say, sub-par. To illustrate what I mean, the aforementioned delivery was supposed to be from Ft. Lauderdale to St. Thomas but we end up in Abaco, Bahamas. Turns out we made a left hand turn when we should have made a right. So you can see what I mean when I describe my navigational skills as sub-par. Truth is, I have none to speak of. Nonetheless, I am delightful to be around regardless of the time of day. I do a great night watch. We didn''t even come close to running into another vessel throughout the entire passage. Perhaps that takes up some of the slack for lack of expertise in other areas. Oh, did I mention that I''ve been an RN for 30 years!
