    • Checked in 2 weeks ago


I had previously posted that i was leaving this October but I put off my plans for one more year due to this covid mess. Looking to leave Long Island NY at the end of summer 2021, probably to head south in October. Bounce around the Caribbean for awhile, head west to check out the San Blas , Rio Dulce and then the Canal. Pacific island chains here we come.
I would prefer someone with some sailing experience, but isn't totally necessary. If you have a cigarette, beer or cocktail tha'ts fine , but I'm not into any drugs at all. Some Kava on the islands I'm all in, but if your a pot head don't waste my or your time. I'm not getting locked up because you decided to hide some weed on my boat. You should be able to cover your personal expenses and help out with groceries. I'm supplying the boat and the means for the dream, so you should have some finances for your adventure. I know it sounds like a long way off, but spring will be here before you know it.
