Get noticed: publish a notice.
It’s free and potentially the biggest benefit of your Coboaters membership. Your best chance of meeting the right people is to publish a notice. This is how most members will look for you. There are notices of crew looking for boats and boat owners looking for crew. When you publish a notice you need to indicate your preferred dates, your port of departure or arrival or if the port is not yet decided, your regional or global area. All of this is to help you find the right people and to save you time. The more accurate you are, the better. If you plan several cruises or weekend trips, publish several notices. You can publish as many notices as you want. You can duplicate them, pause, modify them at any time.
