Experienced Deckhand/Mate/Captain looking for paid delivery opportunities


I have 10 years of sailing experience, mostly singlehanded. The majority of my time on the water has been spent off of the US west coast, in the Puget sound, as well as 4 years in New Zealand, where I lived aboard a 27ft wooden cutter that I cruised extensively in the Hauraki Gulf. I have previously held a USCG 25ton master license (expired while living overseas)

I have captained one, and crewed on several west coast deliveries and currently have a few more in the works. Recent deliveries completed:
-September 2019, Fleming 55, Bellingham to Newport CA
-May 2020, Hylas 44, Portland to San Juan’s
-August 2020, Hylas 44, San Juan’s to Portland
-June 2021, Hylas 44, Portland to San Francisco
-June 2021, Nordhavn 55, San Pedro to San Juan’s
-July/August 2021, Bruce Roberts 53 Cutter, San Diego to Seattle-Captain

Please consider me as a great addition to any boat or any crew. I am happy to cook, clean, stand watch, navigate, repair your boat, go aloft, teach you whatever I can, or learn from you along the way. I am mechanically inclined with a good understanding of electrical systems, inboard engines as well as all other boat systems.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope to hear from you!

Coy is excellent crew - 5 stars


I met Coy via Crew Bay a year ago. Since then, Coy has crewed on my boat for 2 Northwest Pacific offshore passages of about 500 nautical miles each (one triple handed, the other double handed with me). He also spent a week of cruising in the San Juan Islands of Washington on my boat with myself and 2 other friends. I am fortunate he will join my crew for another passage this spring to sail from Portland Oregon to San Francisco California. Coy is a very competent hand onboard. He is nautically knowledgeable, hard working, a good problem solver, polite, and a good cook. His competent seamanship combines well with his positive attitude, interesting conversation and wit to engender respect and friendship of Captain and crew. He follows the direction/guidance of the Captain, learns quickly, has keen attention to details, and jumps to a task when necessary without needing to be asked.
