This thread is marked as being about Argentina

Hello all,
I am trying to get to my sister's wedding in Buenos Aires on August 28. I am hoping to find a job over summer working on a boat that is going in that direction. If anyone has any advice on how or where to look for such an opportunity, I would very much appreciate it. Thanks

A boat going in that direction - from where?

You also mention summer, however August in Buenos Aires is in the winter - on a global forum months give more information than seasons!

Where is the best place to be (in the United States) to get such a job? I am in North Carolina, but willing to go where I need to to make it happen. I am trying to get to Argentina by August 28, my summer (in the U.S.), Argentina's winter, as you say.

Ft Lauderdale and Miami use to be the best places for hopping boats. But its been years, so not sure what its like anymore. If you use the internet and search for work aboards and such, you should be able to come up with some sailing websites that list deck hand positions.
