Dear Shipmates

Introduction

Good listener, team player, able, can fix most anything with limited resources, been up a mast or two, have had to suck my facemask (bottle empty) while solving a problem, not dive rated, but but fine with cleaning hull, prop, through hulls, etc. Have a story or two to share when it is time/appropriate to do so.

A little about myself, my interests and my plans

My motivation and reasons to crew on a boat

share experiencevisit remote placesseek adventurefulfill a dreamface challengesgain experiencelearn to saillive off the gridsustainable traveltravel

Looking to stretch my sea legs, become familiar/effective with different sail plans, rigging, and vessels. Intention is to help when and where I can, not looking for a kudos. Love community in/with people/group positive aspects. No trouble understanding thick accents and mixed language. No issues with identification/pronouns.
