|I guess I'm the luckiest guy on 7knots. In July a wonderful woman with 3 years
cruising experience answered my ad for a cruising mate. I flew to FL in August to meet her,
and then she flew up to Chesapeake Bay for a 2-week trial cruise in September. Now I'm back
in FL with the boat, and she's quit her job to go cruising with me full time. We're heading
to Bahamas in Jan, then to the Tennessee River for the summer. Next winter we'd like to
cruise to Belize and Guatamala. Thanks, Tom for this wonderful site! |

|I'm stuck on land with two kids in college but I work a 4 day week.
I used my 3 days off & your site to help crew boats up and down the chesapeake.
It works well when the boat is not in a rush
( IE two or three days then stop: Norfolk to Solomons, then Annapolis then Cape May.)
This way the skipper gets to visit with friends or site see while I go back to work.
Then when they are ready to move again I'm back. some times I take a day or 2 off for a long leg.
I recently helped a PDQ 36 make the run form Oyster Bay to Norfolk in three legs.
it was great experience and gave me the confidence to charter a 38 cat in BVI for 11 days
over the Xmas Holidays. Due to the back up at the Bitter End's fuel dock they wouldn't let me tie up
temporary.I had to rotate the cat in its own footprint and back it up to the end of the dock
to let my 82 year old dad (2 plastic knees) step off the swim platform on to the dock.
a thumbs up from this former USNA grad made my day.
Your site is my connection to boats so that I can continue to get the experience so when the
time comes I can enjoy sailing as skipper. Recently I been asked to do the Bermuda race next
year. Even though I've been sailing in the bay for years it was my overnight from NYC to Cape May
that convince the skipper that I could be in his bluewater crew.
