dailywarren Dear Captain TSSmith409,
You work it the way you work it, you old salt. My first and favorite skipper, Captain Rick Whiting, sounds exactly like you. For all these fusspots who sit around being keyboard heroes editing posts all day, I say they need to spend more time at sea and less at the keyboard. Love is the law, my friend. I'd sail with you. "If you'd been more forthright"? Pah! You offered a free service for the love of the sea. Why would you be more forthright when everyone jumps your caboose every time a true soul posts on this place. Ping me anytime you need an extra hand! I have all the federal certifications for telephone sanitizing and moth collection organizing. dailywarren at yahoo.com

Many insurance companies are requiring "competent crew" in order to provide coverage for a passage. "Competent crew" can mean a lot but generally it means sufficient crew to provide a safe passage. Many insurance agencies are now requiring a licensed captain as well.

There are many highly regarded non-licensed crewmembers out there and a number of poorly regarded licensed captains as well. It sounds like the original poster has lots of experience and probably would make good crew.

It might have been better if he'd posted "crew" rather than "deliver".

Oh, on my license it says "upon oceans", something I worked very hard for. That means I can take any boat up to 500-tons anywhere in the world without regard to safe port restrictions.

KindOfBlue My guess is the guy is an experienced sailor (likely licensed and insured), but is trying to establish himself as a delivery captain. Without having delivered many boats, it may be difficult to get clients. Just a guess. Could be wrong.

strucksteve I often lurk on this site and rarely post. Also discovered i was registered on two different email addressess because i so rarely post. Just a reminder to the "regulars" of the site. # of posts is completely unrelated to a mariners experience and ability. If fact could be construed as just the opposite. Many folks spend their time sailing not web-surfing. I have met many who have limited or no web-access as they are are so closely tied to the sea: sailing, maintaining the ironjib, or oiling the teak. I do appreciate this vast sea of knowledge the "regulars" impart on the rest of us. Sailnet is a great resource on many a maritime topic with near instant reponse to any question. I hope tsmith is watching the almost full moon rise right now on a beam reach in the lee of an island with steady 14 kts!

I have to agree ts. If you had been a little more forthcoming in your original post, you would probably have received a different initial response. However, you would probably have had to hang around a little more the last few years to have known that.

My wife is still working. I happen to have some free time. I have owned boats all my life and I have sailed in and out of almost every harbor from Maine to Florida. I like to be on the water and I am fortunate to have time and money. So what's wrong with that? I have always believed in "boaters helping boaters"

Good for you, tsmith. "Free" hurts guys like me . but you sound honest and forthright. I hope the right boat comes along and you enjoy your travels.

CalebD tsmith409,
There is a nice chap named Ian who is on an Allied Seawind 32' ketch who is sailing down the coast to Miami right now. He is probably around Norfolk, VA right now. Check his thread out in the 'Crew Wanted' section, his 'handle' is Taffy1960 I think.
I sailed with him from the LI Sound down the East River to Manhattan a while back.

This makes me feel better.

So you are the master of your vessel and not the oceans, the same as I am. I've just never felt a need to hold a security clearance or have a background check done to manage a boat. If you do, well, I guess that's OK too.

We are only masters of our vessels while the ocean allows us to be. When the ocean decides it's time to take charge, you and I are both masters of nothing. Try not to call yourself a Master of Oceans, it sounds pompous and it's completely untrue.

And BTW, Federal schmedral. Why would I want to understand your Federal licensing matters?
Come to the USA and see if you can take passengers for hire with your Yardmassers certificate. We to have recreational sailing certificates issued by the ASA (American sailing assoc.) You are talking a boating certificate and I am talking a Federal commercial license that does it's best to insure passengers safety. We are apples and oranges. Now you can take your opinions and shove them. It's the system we have to work in and I am proud of my accomplishments.

I hope that tsmith409 proves my skepticism unfounded, but we may have to wait 'til 2010 to see.

Tsmith- I am glad that you have proven me WRONG!! (I've only been proven wrong once before - at least according to my ex-wife )

Let me also add that if you were a little more active around Sailnet, a lot of the skepticism could have been avoided.

'Looking forward to your 9th post!

This is the Federal law Covering the Master Of Oceans License less than 1000 tons.
