elcapitanjose: Hi My name is joe… i have two passions in life, motorbikes and the sea!
I'm looking for work on boats that I'm gonna work or at least learn from not just get a tan, if the boat is a job or otherwise. I'm strong, always ready for a challenge, practical and think with my head not my biceps. I love the ocean. Really want to do the Atlantic this year, so any work or recreational involving that passage would be great but my dream is to go round the world one day, so a full circumnavigation opportunity would be amazing. If you're a school looking for an enthusiastic, healthy, strong guy to work in any aspect of boats and sailing, then maybe in exchange for the work you could train me to yachtmaster or better still Oceanmaster. Which would obviously benefit both parties.

Previously in my work life I have owned a construction Company, therefore I'm great with repairs and practical stuff. After that I owned 3 successful bars and Consider myself a good people person and also hold 2 degrees, one in psychology and one in sociology (government and world politics) so can bore you to death or fascinate you. I have a qualification as a personal trainer and sports nutrionist, along with various vocational qualifications that relate to my construction business and other parts of my life. I also worked in sales, marketing and investments. I was a gardener in Portugal for an eco resort. Have also done some short jobs and part-time/second jobs to pay the bills. Barwork, kitchens, etc...

I'm hardworking, brutally honest, a sucker for history especially vikings, pirates and maritime, love to gain knowledge and experience things that others only dream of. I love to hear other peoples stories/experiences and have a tonne of stories to share about my crazy life. I work well on my own as well as in a team and consider myself a friendly adventurous fun guy. I love nature, the wild, fishing, hunting etc... And have a good knowledge of sea and land survival techniques. I am a marine first aider with good lifeguard skills and a good knowledge of emergency procedures and M.O.B. situations. Im also a good cook but hate washing up...

Anything else contact my wattsapp on +351964465191 and my email is:
Verifiable references on request.
I have no ties or commitments so can leave whenever and I'm in Portugal Lagos, so from or to that destination would be helpful for me but I will travel for the right boat.
