Beginner sailor! Cooks, cleans, sings, swims, smiles, communicates. I'll provision, keep watch, and help out with all.
My name is Shawna and I have a couple years sailing and live aboard experience.
I understand how much I don't know as well.
AVAILABLE FOR BOAT HELP IN SAN CARLOS. SOON IN LAPAZ. IM ON A VESSEL, BUT I CAN HELP OUT TO TRADE FOR POLORIZED SUNGLASSES, A MUSICAL INSTRUMENT, AN UNDER WATER HEADLAMP, LITTLE FOOT FINS, A FUN EXPERIENCE I COULDN'T OTHERWISE AFFORD. WILL CONSIDER OTHER TRADES.
I've been told I tend to sell myself short, so I won't attempt to sell myself at all. I will work hard, keep watch, cook, clean, ECT. In exchange for travel, lodging ( most likely aboard) and food.
If I were to be paid, it would be my first paid, sailing ever.
I am planning to have my competent crew certifications asap.
I would likely have it now but recent world events have somewhat held the process up.
I'm generally a quick learner and easy to get along with. Always learning more.
I have met interesting people in my travels including a highly regarded Capitan who taught me a tiny bit of navigation I cannot wait to put into practice. I'm not looking to be a paid navigator yet, however. I want someone else doing it too, at first. Maybe forever.
Basically I could be a good fit for someone who needs a well rounded crewmate. I can learn what's needed and go from there.
I, also, look forward to doing the "tight ship" perfection and precision on a larger or smaller vessel with training and orientation and the whole production. I've never done that but have been told I'd enjoy it.
I love sail boats. I want to own one one day and realize there are as many ways to live on a boat as I a house.
I don't smoke.
I like pets and kids but I don't have either.
I would have a dog, but Its easier to get on a crew without one.
I enjoy music, singing, and learning new songs. I've written a few on guitar. Also can pull off a bit of drumming, harmonica, woodwind and keyboard by ear.
I'm carrying little in the way of luggage, and am currently traveling without any instruments, but I love to play.
I love the water, swimming, snorkeling. I don't have PADI yet, but it is in the plans.
Let me know if you would like my further contact info and we can go from there!
(I think it's also beneficial at the current time, to add that I am a good human being with critical thinking experience. Both to do with creativity in a necessity situation at sea, and to do with human emotion. This may prove to be my greatest attribute on crew at these uncertain times. How you feel is all that matters. I will help us feel good.)
If I were to run into an opportunity to have my training paid for, in exchange for work aboard, that would be ideal, but it is not a necessity.
I'm currently on a vessel in the Sea of Cortez, Mexico with plans to sail to Costa Rica by Christmas and then to Panama
Happy sails Everyone!
