Re: First Time Crewing

There is only one captain so pick a good one.Lots of great comments. I would want to know if this is a straight shot and if not then what the stops are, and I'd want to know where the safe harbors are along the way so if weather gets bad you have a place to run to. The captain should be willing to discus those things. I found out that you can rent a Sat phone for like $100 for the month.

Correction, I had found a rental for $199/ month
