SeadogRennie: With over 75000 + sea miles and a passion for the ocean and sea life, it's worth opening and reading the rest of my profile.

I have been living on the west coast of Scotland since I was 16. I started working as a chef with fresh ingredients, this was seasonal work and I worked my way up to head chef of several restaurants and hotels. During the winter I worked on a creel Fishing boat catching Lobster, crab, prawns and velvet crab, This was a pattern for some years until I became skipper for which i had to have Seafish qualifications. These don't cross over with RYA.

I have worked commercially as a Scallop and shellfish diver, which also gave me the ability to make repairs and do regular maintenance checks, freeing any obstructions from the prop whilst out at sea.

I have sailed most of the West Coast of Scotland on Fishing boats and yachts, I have Sailed around the North island of NZ in 2000 on private yacht for 3 months. In 2002 I sailed from Djibouti to Turkey sailing to Eritrea, Sudan, Egypt and across the Med.

In 2015 I sailed on a tall ship as engineer/crewman/chef for paying customers. This was from West Scotland, to Fowey, across to Northern Spain, stopping at various ports before heading to Cadiz (southern Spain) to spend 1 month doing boat maintenance. I then sailed onto the Canaries to charter for paying customers.

The Skills and Qualifications section bellow are limited as Seafish/fisherman Qualifications are not included. I am a very resourceful individual and am happy to work alone and have proven I can lead a team well, especially under pressure both in a kitchen and on a boat. I have given you an Idea of the experience and knowledge I have gained over the past 22 years, something I believe is far more valuable than a piece of paper that doesn't show the depth of knowledge, initiative, quick response times and thinking needed with a job at sea, especially when saving a boat at sea in hurricane force+ conditions.

I am a keen environmentalist and have completed a course in Marine Mammal Observation. I am always learning about our environment.

I come from a family that has a vast knowledge of sailing as they went on the Blue Water Rally from 1998-2002 (round the world sailing) for which I flew out and helped them sail and maintain the boat. They returned to Britain and now have the leading ecology company in the UK.

I have helped people to understand and become competent in most of the jobs that I have done. I have took regular night watches on yachts and the tall ship. I am very physically fit with a lot of stamina. I am a father of 1 and she is now at an age that I can work away.
If there is anything else that you wish to know, please ask.

I have experience to work as a skipper on private boat with crew from UK, in a lot amateur regattas and in yacht-deliveries too. No smoke, no drugs, like to be a tidy.

Before I began to set sail, I worked on russian tv-channel OCEAN-TV. This is tv about: sea wild life, fishing, adventures, water-sports and sailing too. I was a film-director, journalist, writer and all professions related with video-producing. But decided to stop sit opposite computer. I am sure - I can be useful for your idea! Waiting for reply. Ready to discuss a terms.

By the way, if you need a couple sailors: most of time I sail with my girl who is a really good sailor with day-skipper license. And she is a perfect cook, it is important!

We are currently working for an amazing charter company but have gaps in our schedule for freelancing. We have sailed across the Pacific on our own boat on our 5 year sabbatical. We also have extensive sea miles with large vessels as well. We create the highest level of service and safety to our clients.. We both have a MCA yachtmaster 200gt that is commercially endorsed and Nia is a Licensed, award winning chef who is passionate about food and presentation. She won the USVI boat show culinary competition in 2015 and won the BVI boat show 2016 prestigious best entree' for boats over 60 feet and the best desert over 60 ft. 2016. We know what its like to own a boat, and with that experience we have a sense of ownership, maintenance, and safety to all the boats we step on board. I am extremely proficient in diesel maintenance and troubleshooting as well as rigging and splicing experience. We can provide a trove of references of very reputable people in the industry and abroad and from current employers. For US flagged boats I have my USCG 100 unlimited ticket as well. Before sending me a message please don't ask if I can dock you boat. I can dock your boat. Trust me. No insurance claims ever and especially with docking.
