Everyone always brings up crewfinders...has anyone actually used it? Or traveled anywhere working on a yacht crew?

I have done a fair amount of looking into these websites, and in my travels, I have only met 2 people who have managed to hitch a boat trans atlantic.
one used a website his first time, and has goe round trip from europe to the carribean 2 times now. the other just found a ride asking around in the canary islands. I think that its not unreasonable, and both people have told me that it ended up being quite easy, and assured me that if I really want to catch this ride, I will certainly find it.
Good luck to you, do a bit of research, and maybe start with a shorter trip. a month is pretty average for crossing the atlantic, and if you get sea sick, you will have a shitty time, and the person taking you probably wont appreciate it much. Your window for this year is over, but next winter between the end of october through february, get your ass to the carribean and find a boat!
I will be making this trip next winter, since I missed the majority of the traffic this year.
Good luck in your travels-

If your not from the states just commit a crime and get deported....easy as fuck





















Or put aside this "I don't want to work for the man" shit and save up for a few months and take off with some cash..things cost money in other countries too (especially in Europe!)...all be it a lot fucking less if you go to the right places..


dumpster diving in pour countries doesn't work FYI


Just a thought

My sister actually scored big on find a crew. Wound up on a boat going from LA to Australia with a buncha places in between. She's one of those clean cut international travelers though, with no warrants or convictions and a college degree. I was real sketched by the idea of her being a small boat with two old men for months on end, so I went and visited her in LA before she headed out, and got offered a spot on the boat myself! I turned it down due to my own engagements in this country, but the guys seemed like very solid good people.

I'm going to be trying to get back to the US from Europe on a boat so I've been looking around the internet. This might be useful to read>> http://www.sekoyamag.com/nouveausite/SPIP/breve.php3?id_breve=352

here are the working sites on it: Crew Wanted ... CrewFile - Yacht Crew Jobs, Boat Jobs, Cruise Jobs, Sailing Jobs, Sailing Crew, Deliveries - Cruise Jobs, Sailing Jobs, Luxury Yacht Jobs International
I'll let everyone know those work.. if they don't then I'll just be going around the ports talking to anyone I can.

I'll be trying to get back to the US by boat pretty soon here so have been doing as much research as I can. I just read this >> Ludovic Hubler - Last news, derni it could have some useful tips in there.

Here are the active sites it links to: Crew Wanted ... CrewFile - Yacht Crew Jobs, Boat Jobs, Cruise Jobs, Sailing Jobs, Sailing Crew, Deliveries - Cruise Jobs, Sailing Jobs, Luxury Yacht Jobs International
I'll let everyone know if I have any luck with these sites. If that doesn't work then I'll let you know if I have any luck asking around the ports. Good luck to you!

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    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.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $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.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $115.00 of $200.00
    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.
