Experienced Skipper-mechanic-electrician-boat owner willing to crew

I consider myself a good skipper/boat owner and a competent self taught marine mechanic/electrician. My boat has been my laboratory for the last 20 years where I have made numerous improvements and additions. I can fix most faults without resorting to professional help. With the help of a good toolbox I can probably fix any problems on your yacht too, provided she is not too high tech, too sophisticated or everything is hidden behind digital dashboards. I have already done an Atlantic crossing some years ago and I had sailed in Greece, in England, in Scotland and from Colombia to Panama city through the Panama Canal as a skipper or a significant crew member and always fixing failures and starting stubborn engines. I also have a significant experience in boat hitch-hiking both as host (skipper) or guest (crew). Qualifications and relevant sailing/technical/weather knowledge and experience: • National sailing Diploma since 1996 • More than 20 years of sailing experience as a boat owner (monohull 41 feet) and as a professional or recreational skipper, sailing mostly single handed or with inexperienced charterers. • 8 years full time sailing instructor, • Degree in meteorology and 12 years working experience as an officer in the Greek Air Force where I was a forecaster meteorologist and have retired • Significant knowledge and experience in boat maintenance and repairs including hull, mechanical, electrical, refrigeration, plumbing, rigging, RO watermakers, outboards, bow/stern thrusters, solar panels, etc. • I hold the following RYA qualifications, VHF/DSC radio, First Aid and participated in the Yachtmaster (theory and Practical) exam preparatory course in England (Solent). • I have done more than 10,000 quality miles at sea as a skipper or crew. I also enjoy grilling and cooking, if you like Greek cuisine... 54 years old. Healthy, non smoker, non drinker. Married and have a son. I speak English and German.
