I had emailed earlier but wanted to send another along with my phone number and hopefully show that I’m not a spammer. I am interested in working as a deckhand and want to know if its possible to be put in touch with one of your Captains or whom ever is in charge of hiring. I don’t have a formal resume but I have experience in the longline, rod/reel, and gillnet fisheries on the East Coast. Things are changing there for what seems like the worse and I’d like to fish the Pacific for a change. If you can steer me in the right direction with either who to contact or any other information you could help me out with it would be very much appreciated. I thank you for your time and look forward to hearing back from you.

Thanks Again
