Very helpfull


Mike was very helpful and easy going followed in structions well handled some rough weather on the helm very well(tiller no power steering) The owner would not let any one else touch the ignition to start the engine (we all knew where it was) the boat was not very well prepaired. There was no way to even have a shower and Mike had no complaints at all about the lack of maintenance. He just acceped it and got on with the job.The port and starboard lights were stuck on with double sided tape and the slightet bump would dislodge them. The depth sounder had missing digits and no charts for the gps. I would recomend him to anybody and be happy to have him as my crew.

Feedback on my experience with Prodigal Sailor


He joined me in Port Hacking and got off at Southport. Luck of technical knowledge ( after 3 days on the boat, he still could not find ignition to start the engine), left toilet's seacock open after using it (twice) even that I have stipulated that such a situation could sink a boat. Hard-headed, stubborn personality, luck of interest to remember, where the important equipment is stored, lack of care, destroying items on the boat. In critical moments, when a person should listen to the command of the skipper or the boat owner, decided to do things as he pleased. I would definitely not allow him on y boat again.
