Unfortunately, my idea of cruising cuisine is a stale Pop Tart. Why do my crew always look so aghast when I spoon instant coffee into cold water and drink it? My living standards are somewhat below what most people would consider reasonable, I think a porta-potti is just fine and the smell of diesel is wonderful to me.
So, if she can put up with that on a 28' boat and with a 55 yr old male techie curmudgeon who does not care what she looks like, then MAYBE.
Is she willing to go up the mast? Big plus there. Does she understand a compass? Does she need things explained more than 4 times (if so, NO WAY). Is she the "needy type", if so, NO WAY, I go cruising to get away from that. Is she financially independent? I already raised 3 kids and don't need more to pay for.
28' sailboat sorta wandering southward currently in Marsh Harbor Abaco, maybe heading for Georgetown soon.

|Michael19491949||sailing a boat isn't rocket science... any reasonably intelligent person can be taught to stand watch and be otherwise quite useful in a single day... amazing that people wish to give the impression that there is something so dramatically complicated and difficult... if i were ready to go right now i'd take you along|

If you are still in Key West and would like a part time job cooking, we are visiting over SuperBowl weekend aboard our 36 ft trawler. Let us know.

If you want to do some sailing up in New York, let me know. That's a general invite for all members of the sailnet forum, as everyone knows. Short day sails.
Thinking about sailing to the Statue of Liberty and back. The Statue was made in France, it's a French boat. My wife speaks some French. Just saying...

About cooking in reduce space, not a problem for me, i traveled 7 months from Panama to Buenos Aires in a van with a very small kitchen, and i've been traveling in a van 2 years in Europe too.

Hi guys !! indeed and obviously i don't have any skills in relation with sailing, fiberglass repair, electrical, plumbing, diesel troubleshooting !!
I did a short resume of what i could bring to the crew because some people is interested in sharing a sail with a pleasant helpmate and not especially somebody with sailing skills.
and some people could feel teaching sailing!
thanks to all of them to considering my message I dident expect so much !
