I currently own a 49′ trawler and am making plans to cruise it full-time for several years. The desired cruise would start in January 2007 in Texas and continue into Mexico, Central and S. America, Trinidad, the Islands and returning to Florida. I am looking for an experienced cruising partner or couple to share this experience and some of the expenses.
I would appreciate suggestions and ideas on how to locate people who would be interested in such a trip, are knowledgeable in all aspects of blue water cruising, plus possess the right character traits (honest, flexible, adventurous, responsible, easy-going, etc.).
Also, I would appreciate any comments regarding specific experience, knowledge or traits I should be looking for in a cruising partner. For example, I am sure that speaking spanish would be a desireable asset.
I look forward to receiving your comments and suggestions. Thank you.
