Hello everyone this is my first post so hopefully it isn't in the wrong place... I have become really interested in becoming a deckhand for private yachts and would like some guidance on how to do so. After I graduate from high school later this december I plan on moving to Ft.Lauderdale with my grandfather to get my STCW Basic Safety Training. I happen to know a couple of Chefs who work on private yatchs and they say I will need a agent to get out there (Work on a boat)? Do I need to do any schooling or training program? I really appreciate any help I can get!
