Default Volunteer deck hand

Hey everyone-

My name is Chris, I am a newly medically retired Special Operations Medic, my wife and I are stationed here for the next 18 months and I am looking to break into the deck hand work. I don't need to make it a full time job(but wouldn't mind it) I just want to get out and help people fish as much as possible. I don't need the money I just want the experience. I know how to work with rods and reels, tie lines, gaff and release fish, clean fish, clean and wash down a boat, I have spent weeks at sea and do not get sea sick. Plus I am a quick study and I am reliable and dependable, it's what 14 years in the army will get you. I am also not afraid of a little(or a LOT) of hard work, I have been on 7 combat deployments and I have had to deal with a myriad of hardships, so sweating on a boat all day, or staying up for 48 hours on a over night trip, while not easy, is nothing I can not handle. Please let me know if anyone is looking for additional help. Like I said no pay is necessary and I look forward to hearing from you guys and gals.

Chris

Good luck on finding a gig and thanks for your service. While the season is coming to a close some of my favorite fishing has been done in September, October and November. If you can't find a deckhand job I'm sure you can gain tons of experience hitching a ride with someone and chipping in on gas and bait.

Thank you very much, and that's another possibility for me. I really appreciate your gratitude for my military service, I hope you realize that it never gets old to hear kind words from people about the military doing their jobs. Thank you again.

If I had a boat you'd certainly be welcome. Hopefully some folks will hook you up.
