You're welcome! Take a look at the Craigslist ads in any oceanside city; you should be able to find people who are looking for crews and often no
experience necessary, just a willingness to help out. A few months to a year on board and you'll have a much better idea of whether it's for you or
And a slip is not a necessity. Most bays and inlets have places where you can anchor safely at night without access to the water, sewer, etc that a
slip would have. In warmer areas, showers are usually dips in the ocean, and toilets often of the 'bucket and chuck-it' variety. Your biggest
problem and worry may be pirates which are an issue in some locales, from what I've heard. You'll need to consider security.
Hey, might as well live the dream if a cubicle residency isn't in the offing. Sometimes harsh economic conditions force you to make the best
decisions for yourself.
PS: Oh, and there's also 'Tall Ship' training ships. For a fee, you can learn to work a real tall ship.
