Woman Crew Member Ready to Sail. Been living aboard for over a year and I love it. Looking for a good boat and a seaworthy captain; or is it the other way around? I have done one Trans Atlantic then cruised the Azores and the west coasts of Portugal and Spain. I have had a couple of paid positions including one as first mate and hostess on a large sailboat in the Gulf and the costal bend of Texas. My skills include: cooking, varnishing, general boat chores, maintaining engines and other boat systems, doing minor repairs and troubleshooting, basic canvas work, and first aid. In other words I can fix the stove AND cook dinner on it. I am interested in learning navigation and continuing to work on my sailing skills. I’d like to be aboard a new boat soon. I will consider a paid or unpaid long-term position, i.e. no deliveries. I am looking for a competent and safety conscious captain who doesn’t have a cocktail until the hook is down or the lines are secure, who doesn’t yell or call people names, wants a sailing buddy (holding open the possibility of more), and wants crew to be aboard sooner rather than later. I’d rather to stay in warm climates, prefer cruising to passage making, circumnavigation is a possibility. I am 47 years old, retired USAF, and hope never to work or live on land again. I enjoy SCUBA, most kinds of music, reading, and meeting all the nice folks that are out there. Please email me at [email protected] for a copy of my current resume. PLEASE use that address for a quicker reply, I don''t check this very often! See my personal page for a photo and overview of skills.

That's Impressive! I'm thinking of just getting a boat now, any boat, to team up with you. Could learn alot from you I bet. If you are around the Chesapeake area, would love to meet up and go sailing one day, as I'm looking for some more time on the water before I can purchase my first boat.
Sounds like you will get some great offers to make what you want happen. Good for you.

Hey Gary,
Well, let's start off with basics, then move on to eye candy I guess! Is she listed somewhere to see online?
thanks

Gary,
sorry - I am looking for a Tartan 37C. I remember looking at Charlie Morgan's designs when I was in high school, and lusting after the Out Islands with the rear stateroom.. was so cool. Nice boat, hope you sell her soon!

The boat has been to the Bahamas and Florida Keys, it's a great live-aboard, which I did for 6 months down in Marathon Key, Florida and loved every minute of it. Always had lots of babes in bikinis visiting, especially when I was playing music at the marina tiki hut on Friday nights. The greatest thing about the Morgan Out Island series is the interior space is greater than most boats that are 6 to 8 feet longer. Charlie Morgan built a great boat for cruising - and while some folks claim it's slow, that's a relative term when it comes to sailboats. My fastest speed under sail was 10.2 MPH on a broad reach in Chesapeake Bay with a 25 MPH wind. I was passing everything on the bay that day. My fondest wish is that my son would take it when I passed away, but he's more into the power and speed thing.

I have a relatively young couple very interested in the boat presently, and I think if they can dig up the money, they will be purchasing it before winter sets in. I took them out for a sail last Saturday, and of course, there was no wind greater than 5 MPH, so it was a slow day, but they absolutely fell in love with the boat and its amenities.

All the best,

Gary :cool:
