Hello, im Douglas Mehks im 22 years old.
I am a fish that feels home at sea! I am an Aquarius my birthday is the 24th of February. I’ve been sailing and motor boating my whole life since my family has a summer place in the archipelago. I have done an atlantic crossing from France to the US with 50 foot katamaran (Fountaine Pajot saba 50) we were 3 onboard doing 3 hour watches. I have also done plenty of trips in the Baltic Sea both single-handed and with crew with a 28-foot sailboat. I have also been sailing frequently in the Mediterranean around Sardinia and Corso on S/V Magdalus Secondo a 25-meter sail beauty from the famous Italian shipyard Cantieri Sangermani. I graduated from high school in Sweden studying the nature science with subjects such as math, physics, biology, and chemistry. I graduated with one-year delay since I was in US for an exchange year. I was in Pensacola Florida, the sunshine state 🙂 and stayed there with my host parents and 2 other exchange students from Norway and Germany. We had a great time together. After my year in US I returned back to Sweden finishing my last year of high school. I graduated in July. Direct after my graduation I started working as a Harbor Captain at a harbor in the Swedish archipelago. A busy day we moored around 130 vessels from 30 to 65 ft. As the high season ended in late August early September I moved on and started to apply for different yachting jobs because I want to spend some years on the seas before I start my studies at the University. I got my first delivery job, a transatlantic crossing from La Rochelle in France to Ft Lauderdale in the US. When I came back home I started working as a boatdriver and guide, navigating around Stockholms archipelago with customers in high speed 50+ knots. I also drove around in Stockholms archipelago and delivered groceries to people living on islands. As I enjoy adventure I am also working on my private pilot license, flying is also a big passion I have. I’m easy going and are comfortable to work with everything onboard. I have good communication skills and im a team player. I have license in sport diving and holds the Open Water (PADI) Certificate. I hold pleasure craft operator, and skipper certification (Swedish version) deckofficer class VIII. Engine officer class VIII. Highspeed navigation certificate equal to RIB MASTER. I am looking for either a motor or a sailing boat with a size that lets me have lots of responsibilities and different job situations during a day. I would be very happy to be a part of a crew that has more experience that me so I can learn more.
