50 foot aluminum sailing trimaran
No contribution required
February 1, 2019
Paid by crew
Qualification level required (or equivalent)
Looking for crew to sail Feb 1st from San Francisco, planning to arrive Philippines mid or late March. Food and fuel is free, you're welcome to sail and scuba dive in the Philippines after. I have USCG 200 ton license with 50,000 miles sailing offshore but am an author and professor now. I built the boat myself. It's unsinkable, 30,000 pounds worth of positive foam flotation, boat weighs 25,000 pounds. No flammable materials, can easily survive collision. All safety gear: radar, EPIRBs, liferaft, 300-parachute drogue for hurricanes, etc. New hydraulic steering, hydraulic autopilot so we don't have to hand steer. Rig very strong. Boat very stable with 34-foot beam. New outboard, windlass, etc., all new equipment. Profurl furling. Boat is very strange-looking, large cabins and salon, unfinished inside (finishing interior in Philippines). Shakedown sails last week of January. All you pay is your flight home. Great downwind sail, milk run.
