Everything sounds good, you need to be in the right place at the right time at this point and have a bit of luck. Lauderdale boat show is coming up... It's about to start getting busy if the rain would stop. Sounds like you're ready to get a deck job on a big boat till you get your OOW.

Having seen about a thousand CV's I would say those qualifications are fairly typical these days. Where in Mexico are you ? Try P.V. A few boats pass through there. More and more mexican owners these days too. Good luck.
