Bahamas/Caribbean this winter? Count me in? Experienced, active, ready to dive and grill.

Hey folks, I'm Ben, late 50s, single and very active, and I have been sailing for six years. I'm dedicated, have all my ASA certifications, PADI card, and I chartered boats frequently around Los Angeles where I lived until recently moving back to Maryland. I've also done a bunch of longer passages as crew, in the Caribbean as well as the Gulf, on larger Monos and Cats.

I worked in the Entertainment industry most of my career (I created Final Draft, the screenwriting software everyone uses) and these days I work some, play some, so I have some time to hit the water in search of both experience and adventure.

Should be noted, other than practical sailing experience, I also have other critical sailing skills down pat, though, such as mixing up a dry rub for a steak dinner or knowing where the cold beer is once we're docked! Dare I say Rum drinks?

If I might be a fit in your cruising crew needs, shoot me a message and we can chat about sailing plans and locations and all that. As I said earlier, my schedule is flexible, even for those who might need crew on fairly short notice.
