A Smaller Super Yacht

Crew wanted: Deckhand
Vessel: Power Boat
Size:55 f
Location: Mexico
Destination: None

CaptJezz: This is a volunteer position ideally suited to a waterperson, that would perhaps have plenty of unlogged sea time and experience with private vessels on an amateur basis and would see this position as a step-stone towards a career as a paid Capt, engineer or crew. I capt. this vessel for a private family that enjoy long weekends or vacationing down here on the Southern Baja. We trip between La Paz and Cabo for the most part with some runs up to Loreto or out to the local Islands around La Paz.

In Cabo we prep the vessel and typically pilot the boat for the owner, family and guests for day trips, sunset cruises, etc… In La Paz, we prep the ship and the owner often pilots themselves for a weekend aboard in a quiet bahia anchorage, we then cast off and catch. The work we do apart from cleaning and polishing and keeping the vessel in Show Condition also includes; basic engine maintenance and service, the watermaker, gen-set, other filters and seawater strainers, electrical and electronic maintenance and service. We strive and succeed at having a state of readiness and presentation with little or no unanticipated down time of the ship, anticipating problems. We also do the airport run and other odd livery services for the owner and guests and maintain that vehicle. That’s the big picture.

This ship is on the Smaller side of the “Super Yacht” but, that means we wear many hats. Your part would be focused on the deck work underway, watching out for people/kids as they might move about the boat, participating in cleaning and polishing, bottom scrubbing and participating and gaining experience in other repairs and service as time permits. This is not a fishing boat, you must be housebroken. While we do not typically provide “Silver Service” you should know silver service exists. You will also get some time and experience at the helm. I will do what I can to make this a valuable experience, indeed a step-stone.

Room and board are available, modest. We have accommodation ashore in both places. There is typically plenty of time between the action and you should be able to enjoy the local flavor. We have, available for your use; a quiver of surfboards, dive and snorkel gear, we have our own dinghy’s one w/10 and one w/15hp, we also have a 37’ sailing cat (needs some work). On work days expenses will be provided for. In many ways this is a family affair so, we enjoy sharing meals, a drink or 2 and hope you’ll fit in with that sort of thing.

I have a 3 month trial period on this but, it could be extended by mutual agreements. Looking forward to your responses. I am going to review application and make a decision over the next week and would like to move forward relatively quickly from there. Please be ready to travel on short notice.


Dive buddy and first mate needed.

Crew wanted: Diver

Location: Honduras
Destination: None

dlparedes: I have lived on my cat since 2007. I am in Guatemala for hurricane season. I am not sure of my schedule yet for next season. Perhaps Caymans to San Blas. You would have your own cabin and head. You must do boat chores and maintenance or contribute. Please be a certified diver so I can have a dive buddy. Tell me what skills you have that would be useful on a boat. Do you get seasick? Can you go up the mast? Can you clean a fish? Can you tie a proper knot? Can you tighten an alternator belt? What can you contribute? $$$?
Fair winds!

Adventure Sailing in the Caribbean and Central America - 2017/2018

Crew wanted: Amateur crew
Vessel: Sailing Boat
Size:33 f
Location: Colombia
Destination: Trinidad and Tobago
Logged in: 7 hours ago

Tsamaya: Tsamaya sailed from Scandinavia autumn 2016 and the thought about sailing around the world is growing stronger and stronger.
But there is no rush..

The Caribbean and Central america need some attention before we move on to the next big ocean.

Tsamaya is now located in Cartagena, after a stormy finish of the season new sails have been ordered. The hull needs repainting well, the list goes on..
The goal is to have the boat ready for another seasong in the carabean sea by October/November.

Not looking for paid crew.
Need to have a open mind and a big heart.
On Tsamaya we share the workload and expenses the daily cost is around 30€/per day

No need to know how to sail, Ill teach you.
But be ready for some proper sailing, the engine is shit so we sail everywhere. the dingy has no engine so we row. The kitchen has no fridge but I guarantee you will get some of the best meals in your life. The anchor has no winch so we use our pull it up by hand!

If are a filmmaker, pirate, electrician, hussler or have some other interesting thats a plus.

Check out the fb page for updates on current locations and to see some photos.

One Love!


science and surf under sail

Crew wanted: Amateur crew
Vessel: Sailing Boat
Size:37 f
Location: Mexico
Destination: French Polynesia
Logged in: 9 hours ago

JezzaG: To Spread environmental info thru travel, sport, art and day to day life with locals as we sail through the South Pacific. I think there are plenty of people preaching to the converted in the major arteries of society but, I/we can provide the conversations and the divestment of info and understanding through to the a street performer, a busker of citizen science.

Science and Surf under Sail is an organization in it's very most nebulous form...I offer it to you to mould and shape together with me.

The general concept is to have a two year cycle through the South Pacific from Southern Baja to New Zealand and back. To have that route posted on a web site in order to attract surfers and marine/environmental students to share in various legs of the journey. We will be willing to deviate from our posted track to suite the purposes of guests based on the merits of their research or activity. I would like to travel in a small armada of sail boats in order to host a larger group of guests and achieve a wider sampling or observation or just plain fun. I would like to have the added dimension of this endeavor to be a sort of correspondent based webisode reporting on environment activities and how the are affecting people and how those people are responding to these environmental impacts on their homes and villages. We would also have a sport report, leisure and fun as well as art and food.

I am good at picking up work as I travel in order to fund my own way. I am presently working as a captain of a high tech power vessel for the rich and famous here in Cabo and La Paz, Mexico. I am also a carpenter/joiner, designer/sculptor...good with my hands and can make most of our day to day maintenance and repairs...mechanical, electrical, plumbing, an understanding of our shipboard systems. Now, I want to create a meaning greater than just my own experience and fun...I am no philanthropist but, I see a way to put back, to give back and have fun doing it. I'd like help...participants as partners and crew.

There's a non-profit, A truly non-profit living that can be achieved. Like the pirate ships, environmental privateers of Oceanic equanimity, we'll share the take equally and one extra for the ship. Should we be somehow fortunate enough to make more that we need it gets forwarded on as the partners and crew deem I am a dreamer...Hey? But, I think it is an imperative that all of us thinking, concerned people that call the seas and oceans of this World "home" become informed, educated and engaged or we truly risk loosing the last bastion of freedom. I can see the technology fast gaining the ability to monitor every moving thing in every remote corner of our planet and once the illegal commercial activities are under control then, yours and mine, our simple activities may come under scrutiny...and it might even seem right to require licenses and permits and fees and charges to move about or live off the land or sea as the case may be. So, we can not become unworthy or irresponsible or complacent with our current freedoms to move about the place.

Many thanks for reading this roughing out of my thoughts but, the final draft will be based on all the input from the founding members...My warmest regards, Jerrid of the "Quo Vadis" 37' Snowgoose, cutter and the "Salvation" 45' wooden Bermuda cutter, ketch a Jim Swanson design I would like to save, needs work.

There is more i would like to add to this, a conversation without end but, for now...A simple and genuine "thank you" for your interest and all the responses to date. It is good to see how many folks are concerned and keen to participate. I work as a captain on a private vessel, I am looking for my line of succession for that roll as I look to the South Pacific.Other characters I would like on board: A marine biologist correspondent, a ocean sport correspondent, web development volunteers, camera type person, maybe a producer type person would be nice, shipwright/carpenter type persons...Seafaring folk, other captains and small ships under sail. Many thanks again...


Historic Vessel

Crew wanted: Amateur crew
Vessel: Sailing Boat
Size:73 f
Location: United States
Destination: Mexico
Logged in: 12 hours ago

HarryBlood: I own a historic 73ft 1938 classic yawl. The boat has a lot of history. These spectacular boats were built for the "1 percenters" of yesteryear. We have already departed from Seattle bound for Southern California and a tropical winter beyond. She is a perfect boat for day sail tours, charters and even offshore dive charters. If someone out there loves classic boats and wants to get involved on the ground floor of a classic yacht business, then contact me and we can talk. Ideally I'm looking for someone who has reached a point in their life where they have the inner confidence to invest in themselves, so their future can be more than just looking for their next boat on the internet. I'm really looking for someone who might have the interest in becoming a partner in a long term, income producing and sustaining business/lifestyle. You don't need to invest money just your time. Presently I'm in Newport Oregon. Make some overnight harbor hops with me down the coast and see if you are interested in staying aboard on a longer term basis. But I need crew now. Remember, I'm just saying, there may be more of an opportunity for someone on this trip than is usually present. We are looking to continue sailing south as soon as some repairs have been made to the engine and crew are available. If anyone is interested feel free to contact me at any time. Thanks. (I often use my middle name Harry as is this case on this site. My given first name is Steve/Stephen. )
