I would be up for it. I crewed on a 40` Manta from Tavernier Key to Corpus Christi in December of 2006, straight across, offshore all the way. It took us 7 days, Strong NE Wind on a fast cat...
Also, I highly recommend SteveSC, I crewed with him from Key Biscayne Fl. to Charleston SC two weeks ago, he is an excellent sailor and a great crew mate.
I'm currently in Melbourne Fl. home is Austin, Texas.

I would be very interested in helping crew. I come with broad work experience but little sailing. Because of this I would love to work for experience purposes and don't require any airfare. Do you have dates in mind yet?
