Hi, Are you looking for a respectful crew member with skills and experience to help with your adventure?
Just back from Transatlantic crossing and looking for my next adventure , (references from yacht owner available )
Based in Scotland in the UK , I’m looking to be part of a crew on a boat where I can expand my personal knowledge, improve my skills and contribute as a valued team member and hopefully have a laugh and a beer on the way!
Retired now from the emergency services I can keep a cool head in a crisis. Previously trained in first aid , sea survival , marine firefighting and Helicopter underwater escape training I can bring a set of skillls that hopefully you would never need.
I have way more than just a working knowledge of Diesel engines and can strip a cyl head, lap the valves and seats and rebuild without issue. I maintain a good understanding of boat systems and fault finding from years of own boat ownership.
As an RYA Yachtmaster I can hold night watch and allow you to sleep soundly knowing your vessel is in safe hands.
I don’t smoke , take drugs or bring any immature drama or life baggage.
Any trips considered , I have just sailed the Atlantic East to West (December 2021) but I am fortunate to have the time and good health to go anywhere. Trips of 1 to 4 weeks would be ideal , extended cruising for several months is less likely. Med / Atlantic / Caribbean would be first choices but open to other areas.
So please drop me a message if you have any ideas to explore even if you haven’t firmed up on your own plans / timetable yet .Happy for a WhatsApp / zoom call to discuss without commitments either way. Or message me , a reply is guaranteed. ....regards,
