1. first off,,,never refer to "rain gear" as "rain suit",,,,,,,they'll know you're a "green horn" right off.
2. buy "extra tuff" boots and wear them awhile befor showing yourself around the docks.
3. I would go to seattle and browse around,,,,,,,,,,most every boat winters in seattle, then goes north.

Send a Postcard to the Harbor Master of the town you want to live/work in. Ask them to post it on the bulletin board.

List your qualifications and maybe one of the Boat captains will read it and call you.

Good luck!

Good luck, I figure you want to show up in Dutch Harbor and they will put you right to work...

Got that out of the way early, do you have any mariner skills? Have you been around boats before, if not you are a danger to yourself and any crew that had you with them.

You screw up once and you can get killed or worse yet, get someone else killed! A lot die every year because of that very issue.

What you need to do is move to a Coastal Town and if your dream is to work on a boat, get a job in the local boat harbor working for people getting their boats ready for spring, if you show a good aptitude, then maybe they will hire you as a deck hand, but I wouldn't hold your breath yet.

Get a book called "Chatmans Boaters Guide" and read it, it is the last word on Deck Seamanship, which I would bet at 19 you have very little of.

Good luck on your dream if you are serious.
