For a week, I used to be a sailboat captain many years ago. I've watched my kids grow up and my marriage explode. I now mostly make my living doing deliveries, and teaching sailing. My deliveries are all Caribbean, New England and back with a few transats thrown in for good measure. In a couple of year my son will be in college and I'd love to skipper a boat again, it seems Fort Lauderdale would be a good place to look. This time around I'll just be getting a feel for it. I'm pushing 60 but reasonably fit. However I'd not be averse to a wheelhouse and a couple of big diesels, and don't need to hang on to the sailing thing (not actually true, but I'd continue to sail for fun). My question is where to look, I'm not asking for specific crew agency recommendations ( a PM might be appropriate though). When I was in Lauderdale, lo these many years ago, Chucks steak house was the place to be, I'm sure (and hope) that's no longer the case. There was also a coffee shop in a little strip mall on 17th street, maybe coffee shops are more my speed now. Does the uniform place in Palm Beach (got a case of temporary CRS over the name) still have it's magic notice board? I was thinking of dropping by Hall of Fame Marina and a couple of the yards. I'd like to run a boat on my own, with at the most temporary crew. I'm a Brit' with a green card, I have a 6 Pack (Jones act and all that). I have an RYA Ocean Yachtmaster "Professional" which I understand includes STCW. Just want to get a feel for this, I do O.K. at deliveries, and have contacts there, but really want a job on a boat that stays in the U.S. (I might even contravene the ethos on the "family on board' thread, with the owners approval). Cheers in advance.
