I am sorry. You must have me confused with somebody else. I do not own an Atomic 4 (nor would I), and I did not offer to help. I only have one feeling left and you hurt it. Good luck, play safe.

emt281101 Hello

I wonder if you are still looking for a delivery skipper for your boat. If so, I am very interested. I do have a USCG Master's 50 ton license, with both sailing and towing endorsements. While I don't have a resume, I have outlined my experience below.

My father first took me sailing on the Chesapeake Bay when I was 6 months old; I have been sailing ever since. When I was 8, I began racing on both small boats (dinghies), and Keel Boats. My keel boat racing experience includes a Cal 2-30, C&C 33, Express 35, J/22, J/24, J/29, J/30, J/35, J/42, Melges 24, Merit 25, Navy 44, and a Santa Cruz 70. My dinghy experience includes Lasers, 420s, 470s, JY15s, Thistles, and Optimists. I have done many distance races, including the Round Block Island Race and Vineyard race, both in 2008.

I have been cruising my entire life. My cruising experience includes a Pearson Ariel (similar to a Pearson Triton, only smaller), a Morgan 30, Jeanneau 35, Cal 2-27, Beneteau 35.7, and currently a Bayfield 32. I have sailed offshore many times, including a trip in November 2008 from Annapolis, Maryland to St. Maarten, in the Caribbean. This past June, I sailed from Tortola to Providence, RI, via Bermuda, aboard a Caliber 37.

I began coaching sailing and racing when I was 13- in 2001. I have been teaching junior sailors every summer since then, teaching everything from 8 year old beginners (kids who have never set foot on a boat) to 16 year olds in advanced racing. I have taught at the Baltimore County Sailing Center for 7 summers (Baltimore County Sailing Center - Home), and in 2008 taught at the Tred Avon Yacht Club, in Oxford, Maryland (tayc.com). I have taught Ideal 18s, Rainbows, 420s, Lasers, Optis, and Hunter Xcites. Last summer I taught sailing aboard Lasers, Opti's, and Rainbows at YMCA Camp Letts in Edgewater, where I continued to teach school groups and private groups canoeing and team building activities through December. I am a Small Boat Level 1 Sailing Instructor through US Sailing, and am also a Maryland Certified EMT-Basic, with plans to study for my paramedic license within the next few years.

I wonder if my qualifications meet your requirements. Should you require more information, I can be reached via email at captcore@gmail.com

Mercators are actually excellent sailboats, have a circumnavigation in their history and of the 38 that were originally built yours is the first I have heard of that is not in working condition. I am fully confident about this boat.

I suggest you consider another hobbie with your luck, maybe skateboarding


Request still out there for anyone in the PNW area that might be able to assist with this move and I agree with you CharlieCobra, this is a fairly short run to make, so should be doable even in the more challenging Oregon coastal waters.

jrd22 Ain't going to make the search for a Captain any easier either:-))

erps I think I would be feeling a little sick to my stomach right now after reading about Apogee's experience.

Tbrad Apogee.....ROTFLMAO!! Acerbic, poignant, and too too funny!

apogee1mars Did you survey the Mercator 30 before purchase? Just a thought. The 20 mile ride in decent Wx will not be too bad. The reason I am asking about the survey is because we had a Mercator 30 (ORION) that self destructed. This was accomplished by the keel being weighted by means of cement and tool ends. Saltwater eventually permeated and the metal tool ends exfoliated and breaking up the keel structure. We stripped the hull and stepped the mast in the backyard. We built a table around the foot of the mast and would hoist the sail and keep it appropriately trimmed during long durations of drinking Mai Tais and playing croquet. We sailed the backyard many places..........

CharlieCobra October can be iffy along this coast but a short run like that should be doable.

Captain wanted for PNW

Have recently purchased a Mercator 30 offshore sailboat. The boat is now moored in Bandon, Oregon. Need to relocate the boat to Charleston, Oregon approx 20 miles north of Bandon.
Have no experience with Coastal sailing and am in need of an experienced Captain to help bring this boat safely to Charleston. This will also be an opportunity for me to experience and learn more about Coastal sailing.
Would like to accomplish this during the month of October, dependent on the weather.
