Looking to crew

Terry Kimmel GB Dragonfly, thank you for your kindness, mentorship and friendship. Your fine character is a class act

Hi to all, I am a newbee hence the user name Midshipman...toddler just seemed, well you get the point. If Midshipman is not in line with my intended use (newbee in training), I can change it to Newbee. The plan is to transition my name with experience. We'll see how this all works out.

I am landlocked in Columbia SC, no boat, but with tremendous calling to seamanship. I have helped the Admiral raise our wonderful family, 2-sons, +daughter inlaws, and grandaugter. Having rounded 50 +/- 1-2yrs, I hope to embark on this journey, by all account that I can determine, engauges me on so many levels - best described by all your heart felt passion and expertise in the many post and blogs.

Looking to link up with somebody with a trawler greater Charleston, Cooper-river or Lake Murray area that can use some company. bhans84555@aol.com

Many years ago, when I was in the navy and moving around a lot, I used to post ads with my boating resume volunteering to crew boats in marinas. I was never disappointed and got many offers, some which I was able to accept.

Even if you do not have a lot of boating experience, you may have other attributes you can use. Can you cook, clean, do brightwork or make an outstanding old fashioned or margarita?

I imagine sail boaters will have more need for crew than motor boaters. Sailboats often involve more work when underway (ropes to pull and let out), even if nothing more than moveable ballast.

Gorgeous vessel...everyday I a amazed and surprised to see or read or find a new trawlers like yours. What helped you decide on the Alexander? Have you sailed before trawlers? Do you have to put your boat on the dry in winter there?

Mr. Midshipman,

You are more than welcome to come out on my boat. I am in N Myrtle Beach so Iím not sure if thatís within your travel limits. Iím still working on the boat and hope to get out of here for a while in March.

I will probably be able to take you out for a spin late spring or early summer.
Iím hoping to talk the other local TF scoundrels into having a raft-up somewhere in the Waccamaw River area this summer.

If that sounds ok with you, PM me. KJ

slight hi-jack-

I lived there (Pawley's Island) briefly a decade or so back, if things haven't changed, there is an area called the Gold Island/Mountain/Beach or some such, where I never had any shortage of easily made friends. I hope to get backup that way again.
