Cappy G: Hello,
My girlfriend and I are currently in the Miami Beach Marina on an annual contract there, living aboard.
The location is perfect, easy walking distance to the beach and the heart of South Beach, in Miami Beach.
We would be interested in a giving someone room and board in exchange for helping out around the boat. ( cooking, cleaning, laundry, boat projects )
We would pay for your food, you would have a your own stateroom or a bunk, depending on what other people were aboard, and a work schedule in the morning for a few hours, and the rest of the day would be yours.
We like to go sailing/deep sea fishing once or twice a week, and may begin taking people chartering off of Miami soon too.
The position would begin as a trial run, and if we were all compatible, it could be an open ended arrangement for the right person, and we may evolve into a job helping with chartering
There could be the opportunity to make extra money too if you wanted, by working extra hours.
We're looking for someone young and keen. Experience not necessary.
Please contact me for details and include an email address for correspondence if interested.
If you don't include an email address, I likely won't get back to you. It seems here that as soon as I open an email, it disappears and takes me ages to find out where in the archive it went. The last one I couldn't find.
Below are old posts...
I am doing day sails out of Miami Beach Marina with my girlfriend and friends. We usually drag some fishing lines as well, and have been catching mahi-mahi and mackeral etc.
We take out friends and most are not familiar with sailboats. Its a lazy social, relaxing time, but I end up having too much work to do with the sails, and fishing lines, and being on the helm when the auto-pilot isn't liking the waves, etc etc, since no one else knows much about running the boats or fishing etc.
I am looking for someone to come out with us and help with the boat. Getting it ready, and put away, and sailing, manning the helm, etc while we're day sailing off of Miami Beach.
If you need to log hours or want to get out on the water and meet people, or if your interested in joining me when i take off down through the Caribbean in a year and a half, then touch base.
below is my old info that I'll leave up for now to let you see the kinds of trips I do fairly often...
I'm considering a trip to the Bahamas or Cuba this spring. Dates etc are still fairly flexible.
I'll leave the older versions of my profile here below so you can get an idea about what I'm looking for and the kind of trip/arrangement etc.
Contact me if interested. Cheers, Grant.
The blurb below is for when I'm cruising, but for now I'm in a marina in Miami Beach - perfect location and beautiful place.
The boat is fresh out of storage, and 'fresh' is hardly the right word. She need TLC and elbow grease. I currently have a couple aboard helping out, but wouldn't mind one more.
We plan on doing some day sailing once everything below is stowed and has its place, and the more major work is under control.
I'm asking for about 3 hours of work each day and pitching in with the other crew regarding dinners.
Let me know if interested. From now until early Feb, and perhaps joining later in spring as crew down to Cuba and the Florida keys.
The bit below this is my usual ramble when I'm cruising.
I'm cruising solo for the next couple of years in the Bahamas, Caribbean, Chesapeake Bay, the UK, Mediterranean, Cuba, etc.
I'm looking for nice types, laid back and friendly, who are easy to get along with to share in the adventures.
I don't know yet how long the positions would be for. I'm still working that out, but likely up to a couple of months.
There will likely end up being two or three crew aboard.
I'm new to this, so I'm still working out how many crew aboard, and for how long etc., but one to three other than me.
I've no real itinerary of schedule...just looking to gain experience and explore new places, meet new people etc.
I'd cover all expenses on board, but I'd give preference to people who could pay for their own food and drink.
Experience not necessary.
Drop me a note if you're interested. Cheers, Grant.
