Would be interesting if later on Luffy recruited a pirate trying to attack the crew that luffy took an interest in. Something a bit like how Ace became a WB pirate. But maybe that would be later on in the New world. Something tells me Luffy is not going to stop recruiting. I mean, if he meets someone interesting with a large will then I dont see luffy thinking to himself that he has enough members and cant recruit another.

all of luffys crew are basically division commanders. so i cant see them having a large crew of more than 10 or 11. they will get help from others when necessary.
the strawhats are a bunch of freaks anyway.....so why not complete it with a fishman.
oda doesnt introduce names for no reason. like he did with kong then we saw him, and when the level 6 prisoners that joined BB were eventually shown. so i think he introduced fisher tiger for a reason. no im not saying he joins cause he is dead, but maybe he had a son that will join.
i fishman modeled after a tiger shark that uses fishman karate

of all the characters that has been introduced none of them have this
12 or 13 are to many,,,,,oda will have 2 many characters to drawh every week and it would be hard to get each member proper face time
the lst member will either be fisher tiger child or kokoro's son and chimneys father

I think that the additionnal crewmates will come after in the new world !!! Luffy said in the begining of the serie that he want to have at least 10 members in his crew so maybe Oda will organize the rest of the serie like the grandline part Luffy will try to ask the most interesting character in each arc to join his crew. And maybe he will join or not but it's sure they will be at least one or 2 more SH!!!
Final main crew will probably be 11(including Luffy) Our 2 new crew members will come After the Fishman Arc once we enter the New World... And I'm thinking Oda will give us some variation on the SH normal recruitment method. (I.E Luffy see's someone he likes...) I think we are going to find someone who actually wants to join the crew which would be new and cool! (Still Hoping for a cabin boy/girl! Age 13-15) And for our last crew member we will probably see someone highly unlikely join the crew... (I.E Former Marine/WG official... )
And well, according to chess on the spoiler thread, Marguerite joined the Kuja Pirates. I hope that's enough to take her down of the list of possibles.
Boa not followed Luffy to SA, so I guess She's out of this too. Jimbei still could be on the running, Perona not appearing is a sign that we wont see her again (She wasn't even mention by Rayleigh or Shakky!) or at least very likely to.
Now the strongest candidate is a Fishman dude. Which I think it would be really cool depending on the design mostly because the "powers" it will have are already cool according to the race.
Anyway, my bets goes to Jewerly Bonney. A previous rival, a supernova, a girl, a strange Devil Fruit ability and a sad past.
I kinda like Jewerly Bonney idea! I mean I felt bad for her when she got caught by blackbeard (sucker for womens tears...) And all things considered she tried to stop Zoro from doing something stupid... I wouldn't find it far fetched for the SH to sneak in somewhere and stumble upon a captive Bonney and set her free... Would be awesome (I definitely like her as a member of the crew...) much more than I like Jimbei...
Ans She wont betray anyone on her crew because everyone was killed!
Ok, that sounded less jerk in my head >_>
Is Arlong a possible choice? He wasn't in Impel Down so who knows... Maybe he's at Fishman Island and Jimbei can force him to join or something lol
ok this chapter has made things a bit more clearer.
so far over the past few months a lot of names have been thrown out and here are some of the mor popular ones.........mr 2, perona, hancock, maugerite, and jimbei. im going to break them down a little bit.
mr 2- i think he is still alive, but he will not join. sanji has trained with the okama for 2 years and i think he will have a mix of his own style with newkama kempo. i cant see oda putting another okama kempo user in the crew since they would be the same.
perona-i thought she had as much of a chance as hurcules to join. the fact that she didnt show up with zoro severly lessens her chances.
maugerite- she is now a kuja pirate like a said earlier, that was her dream. she will not become a a strawhat and plus after the skip she would not be strong enough to join.
hancock-she didnt arrive with luffy, but she is so love sick she could possible follow him to fishman island. she has history with the greatest fishman, fiher tiger so if she came along more could be revealed, but i doubt it. a key thing is this
the last panel.....they said they would help whenever they needed them. they are not as tough or much of a threat without boa, so i think for that reason she will not join. she is funny as hell but she will stay behind.
jinbei-i think he is the leader of the sunny pirates but we will have to wait and see. of all the character he has the best chance, just by process of elimination.
final verdict-the next strawhat member will be a new character. my guess is a fishman but who knows with oda
