Boat size & type: .. 34' GRP sloop with a great passage making pedigree

Embark port: .. Port Stevens NSW

Estimated departure (or join) date: ..10 May 09

Arrival port & ETA (or voyage details): .. Pt Stevens to Newcastle or Coffs Harbour then direct to Noumea

Number of other crew aboard (Skipperplus): ..Only skipper

Crew qualifications required and duties: .. Good eyesight, reasonably fit, able to stand watches and willing to call the skipper if in doubt. If able to cook the skippers diet will improve.

Cost to join vessel and repatriation is paid by: .. Crew

Estimated equal-share contribution to food/drinks: We split the bill at supermarket checkout

Note: No contribution towards any other costs (fuel, propane, fees, marinas, etc.) is required from crew.

More info
: ..

A first leg of a seasons cruising that might extend if skipper and crew are exceptionally compatible.

The skipper is a retired merchant seafarer and full time liveaboard so most things are already here. If you want to do celestial navigation, BYO sextant. Mine is out of bounds.He is also a smoker, (lee topside only)

The vessel is fairly traditional with a bit less internal space than boats designed for the charter market, but carries sufficient stores and water for extended voyages.

The voyage would, I assume, well suit someone wanting to log miles and night hours. If you want to do celestial navigation, BYO sextant. Mine is out of bounds.

Alcoholic beverages will be supplied and paid by the person consuming them and at sea limited to one stubby(or equv.) per day.

Looking forward to your reply.

Thanks for your query, Hope the following sheds some light.

Rival 34 , "hydrovane" wind vane and "Simrad" autopilot.

I normally sail single handed so I avoid the wheel as much as possible.

Furling head-sail, inner forestay for No2, twin, and storm jib. Slab reefing main. NASA instruments incl. AIS radar.

Navman Gps as well as gps on laptop.

HF radio x 2, Codan marine and Icom ham.

Regards
