Could you fill our shoes?
One of our favorite lines is “How hard could it be?” When it comes to trying something new, perhaps that’s the secret, just believing that things are possible in the first place? It’s what we did when we bought a boat without really knowing how to sail. It’s what we did when we left Canada for parts unknown. And it’s what we did when we decided to become a charter crew. In the latter example, with only our desire to learn and be the best charter crew out there, we had a couple of stellar seasons (until you know what happened).
While we’re now on another path altogether, there is a real need for quality charter crews in the Virgin Islands, to do exactly what we had been doing. How do I know this? Because we have very good friends in the industry that, on a regular basis, keep asking us “Can you recommend a good crew for us? We need good crews, several of them!” Note that I said crews, not boats. Our friends have the boats… large, nice catamarans. What they need are Captain/Chef teams who are eager to work, make money, and have fun in the process. Think you have what it takes to do this? Comment here and I’ll pass your names along to our friends. For the right couple, it can be a great gig, and like I said, “How hard could it be?”
