Most will list their experience with previous voyages, type of vessels, endorsements, etc..
You might try there. Good luck....If you find one see if she has a friend.

What you will find reading the ads there is one common thread. Those wanting a crew want one for free or nearly free and those available to be on a crew want to be paid.

Ah so, capitalism at its best! If I needed crew, I would look for one that would pay half the fuel cost.

The situation gives a whole new meaning to singlehanded voyages.

Sometimes you have to take matters into your own hands!

Perhaps look at some of the mail order bride sites. Or go to some of the countries where women are anxious to meet men from the US and where normal income is much lower and you'll look ever wealthier.

Of course, the honky-tonk drunk women approach in the proper geographic area of the US might yield an equivalent result. The probability of getting a "hell yes...I'm all in for this!!!" can be quickly assessed by measuring the tattoo to tooth ratio.

When that group sobers up though they're typically not as agreeable as the ladies available from some of these other countries. I've known one mail order bride and one "being able to stay in the US bride" The mail order bride was extremely nice but limited educationally and her husband was beyond jerk. The stay in the US knew exactly what she was doing. Stay with him three years, become a citizen then dump him. He was a lazy, worked only part time type and she paid the bills. Plus he got a trophy wife, far out of his league in looks and brains. Oh and it only cost her a lump sum payment of $10k to get him to sign divorce papers, when he could have gone after far more. He never had any idea how much she was making, just they had a nice home and she was paying all the bills. He signed the tax returns without really looking as all that mattered to him was she was paying the tax and he didn't have to. So, guess he got a three year free ride with a trophy wife.

They both got what they wanted. Fair deal I guess. You know I'd say he was one of the dumbest people I ever met, but then he had a trophy wife supporting and taking care of him, so maybe dumb is smart.
