The best crew is not only helpful with maintenance, navigation, daily choirs, etc., but also enjoyable to be with. The best crew is a person who can reduce the stress of a voyage by assisting with all boat operations (and in an emergency act as captain) and help with, cooking, maintenance, clean up, but can also share interests and conversations. I will be happy to provide recent references from ocean crossings (Caribbean to Gibraltar via Azores - South China Sea - Philippines to Thailand via Singapore. - Bering Sea commercial crab fishing - etc. Being experienced in crewing, I have learned to appreciate a boat with all critical systems working, and the owner not depending upon crew funding to maintain their boat. Health, no diet restrictions, fit (just finished 2700 mile hike from Mexico to Canada), kiteboard, efoil, ski race, rock climb, etc. Also, 200 ton Mate Endorsement and 100 ton Capitan United State Coast Guard license. Mechanical Engineering Degree.... enjoys fixing all things....
