  • Description


    Ahoy, the names Kevin. I have lived aboard my Gulfstar 37' aft cockpit sailing vessel "Fleeing the Scene" for about 7 years. Together we have logged over 3500nm throughout Florida, Bahamas, Dry Tortugas and the Gulf of Mexico. Fleeing the Scene (FTS) is a cutter rigged sloop with solar and wind providing for all power needs. She is fully refit with new refrigeration, 2x roller furled headsails, and solar bridge. Electronics include radar, gps, chartplotter, wind, speed, depth, temp, autopilot, vhf, ssb, epirb and a sat phone.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    Sailing provides unparalled opportunities to interact with diverse and unique cultures around the globe. FTS has run multiple aid and relief missions to multiple locations. There is currently an aid mission being planned for Puerto Rico for late February.

    I am looking for a deckhand/galley help/fellow adventurer/good buddy, for a crossing from Key West/ Miami or anywhere between, to the Bahamas and beyond. Plans for 2018 include extensive Caribbean cruising as well as Mexico and Latin America. Sailing requires a wide range of skill sets including but not limited to carpentry, electrical, plumbing, mechanical (diesel and gas, 2 and 4 stroke), and rigging work. Previous experience not required, only the ability/desire to learn these skills as well as all the necessary knowledge and skills required to sail. Someone who enjoys (or at least doesn't mind) cooking would be highly desirable.

    Bring foul weather gear.

  • Hébergement


    Crew lodging onboard is provided by either of two midship bunks each approximately equivalent to a full size bed. However, a hammock topside is normally a pleasant choice. Stowage of clothing and personal items needs to be kept to a minimum. 2-3 drawers and a two and a half foot wide closet are about all available to crew. Gear such as SCUBA equip, fishing tackle, or larger such as a kayak or wind board can most likely be accommodated as well.

    General provisions (groceries) onboard will be provided for. Items in excess of provisioning (ie. Booze, cigarettes, lotto tickets, rag mags, calling cards, cell/sat phones etc.) Are the responsibility of the crew member that desires them.

    We will be traversing multiple nations and continents and all fees associated with these crossings will be the responsibility of the crew that wishes to make the voyage.

    These costs include but are not limited to: cruising fees, visas, passport fees, fishing/handling permits, etc.

    Dockage, anchorage, and mooring fees will be shared based on need, and desire of crew.

    Bring foul weather gear.

    Time onboard the vessel will be spent making repairs (because something is always broken on a boat), actively sailing, standing watch, and enjoying some sun and having fun! Drinking is permitted onboard because we're pirates of course, however there are times due to safety concerns (such as a 4 day blue water crossing etc.) Where drinking will be kept to a minimum.

    Time at port can be spent pretty much however you want. Keep in mind, we will be in multiple countries with different norms and laws. Try to be respectful of this and certainly try to stay legal. There will be a handful of duties to share at port such as provisioning the boat (grocery shopping) and probably tracking down a piece of hardware or two that we broke on the sail. Otherwise enjoy yourself!

    Destinations and timelines are flexible onboard. Part of the fun of cruising is not having set in stone plans. Suggestions will always be accepted and crew input will be weighed heavily. A long term commitment is not necessary but it is important to keep in mind that we will be in many remote locations where it could take multiple weeks to reach the closest airport if you wish to disembark.

    Sailboat living always sounds like a dream but the reality is a good bit of hard work, long hours behind the helm, and a lot of sweat. I enjoy these challenges and the exciting rewards that come with them. You too should be inclined towards hard work, commitment, exploration, and dedication as well as an appreciation for a decent cocktail and spectacular sunsets.

    One thing to note about Fleeing the Scene is that she is a "green" vessel. This lifestyle includes minimal power and especially water use (standard on this size vessel anyway). A typical boat shower uses ~3gal of water. The head is a composting unit that utilizes coconut coir as substrate. Often times meals will be provided by the sea. Fishing, spearfishing, lobstering are common occurrences onboard.
