Thanks Don but..

thanks for the suggestion Don, the lead time is too short for Panama, but I'll see if he needs someone after Tahiti.

AN UPDATE, ...valuable lessons learnt

I'm pleased to say that response to my requests for sea time have found a few readers, I just returned from an ill fated voyage out of Brisbane headed for Lord Howe Island, The owner and his father had recently bought the boat and decided to cross the Tasman Sea, We returned to shore after 4 days with numerous problems. the lesson I learnt here is that when you are days out to sea, relatively minor problems have enough time to get a lot worse. If the boat and crew aren't 100% when you leave, it can all go downhill fast

However I valued the time and experience, and am currently discussing some upcoming trips with a few other skippers.
