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! For a overview of skills and a photo see my personal page.
