Malta on my mind
Originally wanted to departure for Nova Scotia in May. After that…??? Malta and Greek Islands??? But I have been putting in a lot of work on the boat (more than expected - a lot more than required) and given that we are deep into the summer I think the Canada trip is a "next year" consideration. Everything else is possible.
The 1st Mate.
One quality companion, female only, needed for each or all of the listed tasks, no couples or teams. Companion should be fit, disciplined, at least some minor sense of morals and humor, able to swim and know the stern from the bow. Pets, bicycles and children are loved but strongly frowned upon. Cleaning is expected but will be shared. Cooking and other duties will also be shared. Following orders is expected but will be explained and not barked (unless stuck in a hurricane). I am not hung up on race for in my lifetime I have dated all of God's colors (you know the tune "red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in His sight. . ."). More concerned with age – young enough to do the job and old enough to identify with (not necessary adopt) the captain's values.
Learned sailing as a kid, owned a 18' but admit my sea miles need building. I am a retired engineer, retired soldier (officer and a gentleman) looking to explore and have some fun. Raised in Fort Worth with a solid church going family of four kids – safe, trustworthy, honest, and give more than I take. Normally I am "up for anything" and I have had many lives to prove it. Pigeon Fancier, Airborne jumper, geek, video & music producer, amateur road racer, author (ask and I will give you the title, went to #9 in the military category at Amazon), public speaker (several states & Europe), college professor. . . fun and funny to be with, capable of holding your interest, for a while anyway. I’m free-thinking but generally lay it on the line and seldom hold much back.
