My vessel Phantom 'D' is currently in the BVI's and I'm in Canada for the summer.
I'm looking for a handy Mate to help with simple repairs, such as, electrical and electronic wiring, connecting HF/VHF DSC Radios to an E-120 Display, varnishing and antifouling, installing new speakers and a second loudhailer horn, new flag halyards, spreader lights, new winches & clutches, windlass lubrication, etc.
I'm a licensed Marine Engineer, Offshore Yachtmaster, Certified Navigator and a HAM and know how to execute the workload.
I need a keen energetic Mate to assist for about 3 weeks on the Hard in Virgin Gorda prior to cruising down Island to Venezuela where I plan to lay-up Phantom for the summer of 2009.
I'll pay all boat expenses, including food aboard while working on the Hard. Once cruising, a contribution to food would be appreciated, other expenses to my account. Personal shore expenses and travel costs to Phantom are to the Mate's account.
The assignment commences with my return to Virgin Gorda 15th September, 2008 and ends anytime at the Mate's option and our compatibility up until Mid April, 2009.
No alcohol while underway, no drugs anytime. I smoke!
