Question: Can you give me any tips on how to find opportunities to sail from Southern California to Hawaii? A few years ago, I sailed from the Caribbean to Portugal on a small sailboat. I was taken on as crew. There was just the captain, myself and one other crewman. How can I find a situation similar to this, leaving SoCal and ending in Hawaii?

Answer: You’ve heard of EHarmony, which matches singles (or so they say) with other singles (ditto)? Welcome to what I’m calling Sea Harmony, a whole world that endeavors to match would-be crew with need-some-crew boats.
