Competent Sailor / Captain, Mate, Deck Available January 2020

Greetings, #I will be available in Jan 2020 and am looking for a paid position aboard a sailing vessel in any capacity on deck. With more than 40 years of experience in both power and sail including two trans-Atlantic crossings aboard sailing vessels up to 156', I am offering my service in any capacity on deck. (I do cook well, but prefer to sail). I have a Master 5 and MED 3 in Australia, and a 100 ton Master near coastal aux-sail from the US. I am currently living aboard my cape dory 28', on my way to the Caribbean. Most recently, I was a Ferry Master on the Brisbane river in Australia. I have much commercial experience as Mate and Engineer on schooners up to 50m, in addition to 9 years spent aboard a 33m gaff rigged sloop as Mate, Engineer, Bosun, and Educator. Additionally, I have been Captain of charter and sail training sloops up to 20m in Alaska, San Francisco, New York, British Virgin Islands, Greece, and Australia. I am a people person- and find the interaction I have with crew, customers, students, and the general public to be energizing and rewarding. I have sound knowledge of the operation and maintenance of non-motorized, sail, and power vessels, and have worked as an engineer aboard large sailing and motorized vessels, as well as a rigged of high end racing and cruising yachts. Having successfully held supervisory positions of responsibility and accountability. I feel that I could apply my boat skills to any position very effectively. I am positive, safe, responsible, and proactive, ready to jump in when the need arises. I do not smoke, or use drugs, and drink only on special occasions, but that doesn't mean I do not know how to have a good time! My hobbies include scuba ( PADI open water), mtn. biking, hiking/camping, skiing, swing ( lindy ) dance, and I also play mandolin. (Yes, I know Buffet's margaritaville :) My preference is for traditional sailing vessels- but I am happy aboard anything that is floating...less so when it is sinking. I am looking for a happy, sober crew on a well found vessel. Thanks for considering me.
