Hostel Jobs - Work at a Hostel!

Have you ever wanted to work at a hostel as a way to save money while traveling?

boatcrew's picture's Birthday just turned a year old a couple of weeks ago!

In May 2005 I was walking down the street in front of a crew house in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and was thinking about how much time I had spent in the late 1990's searching online for resources on how to work on boats.

Suddenly it occurred to me that I could create an online resource that would help people find information on how to work on boats. Many people do not realize that getting boat work is a real option and that it can pay very well.

Since this site was launched, has seen many thousands of visitors, and has helped at least several people get started with their first crewing position. I hope that there are many more who find something useful in this site. If you have a story to share, please post it in the forum in the lounge.

Stay tuned for more features and a new look coming soon.

Yacht Piracy has an interesting page about yacht piracy. There are still pirates in some parts of the world. These attacks generally only happen in certain locations which can be seen on this piracy map.

New feature: Blogs (beta)

I've added a new feature to this web site. Each user can now post a personal blog on this site about your travels on boats. Just create a user account (it's free) and use the "create content" link that will appear to write your blog entries.

Let me know if you have any suggestions for this feature. It is still in test stages.

More information about this coming soon.
