Looking for UK based sailing crew... (1 Viewer)

Current Location
Essex, UK
Well i'm nearly 19 so on to the next chapter in my life... traveled inland UK by push bike and motorcycle, cycled 350 miles around Germany in a week, came back to the UK and moved into a caravan for a while, sold that and now i'm in the process of finishing off my 22ft Macwester Rowan sailing boat...

Looking for crew leaving Essex within the next 4-6 weeks. The boats a 4 berth and i'd like to fill it with interesting people and go on some interesting adventures. Not sure quite what the plan is yet, but I have some ideas. Basically looking to do a shakedown trip either to Scotland or South Wales before setting off for the med this summer.

Experience not required, I don't have the greatest amount myself but i've done some coastal sailing before with my old boat. Wanting to split costs of everything on the boat evenly between everyone onboard at the time.

Loads of safety equipment on board, life jackets, harnesses, throw rings, flares, ditch kit, loads of medical supplies, tools, spare engine, etc, hopefully most things needed to dodge a sticky situation. Full solar setup for lighting, charging phones/tablets etc. Petrol genny. Just been to pick up a 9.9hp Yamaha outboard. I hesitate to say she's a pretty well prepared boat and has proven herself in the past many a time.

Just finishing up work now, head lining, some interior paint, cleaning, more cleaning, electrics completely rewired, fitting gas heaters, etc etc...

Pets welcome (providing they don't eat my kittens), don't have an issue with the odd drink or doob providing you're not a twat, hey, what are you waiting for? Drop me a message and we can arrange something!

    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.

    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.

    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

Back in minneapolis for a minute, possibly going to nationals? regardless hmu if you're around
Happy (very) belated Father's day to our Oogle Daddy @Matt Derrick !
Now im housed up in a suite for three days. Two bedroom, two different direction facing balconies, pet friendly, and a kitchen. Thank god for CAA coverage. Smartest thing ive done in months. Covers 600$ worth of lodging and food for 72 hours from "incident". That being my truck being inoperable. This doesnt fix the problem but holy fuck do i need this.
Holy fuck I missed being back out here. Tour’s been fucking amazing so far, and getting to see so many old friends and making some new ones has been fantastic.
Off day between Salt Lake City, UT and Reno, NV today. Gonna try to find a campsite for us tonight and I’m excited to sleep under the stars ✨
Holed up in the shop property for the third day. Fried 6 eggs and made some toast for myself and my dog. Something to spice up the dog kibble life. Poured myself the cheap rum and rootbeer drink. Buddy from the insurance/license place brought me some ice :D But there is no sunshine and rainbows. This is survival. This isnt intagram. It was dark and frustrating and cramped, with that side of lonely. Tomorrow we move.
Looking for a few people to join me in an off grid wilderness community. Have hydroelectric and small solar.
Almost died a fiery horrific death when the wiring crossed an shorted in the camper, had to jump in the water to save my dog from drowning when a current was pulling him under roots and branches (one of the most heartwrenching experiences of my life), and i fucked the engine in my truck on the mountain highways. Repairs are going to be expensive and take long. Thats kindof how my summer is going. Beats jail but just barely
Just covered about 500 mi in 12 hrs by train. Two hot as fuck IMs under a full moon. Only one stop was made...an unexpected siding in the exact place i wanted to be.
