Re: Baggett and Sons East Coast Road Trip
If I had some jobs lined up, we'd apply for a visa and show up on your dock.
Charlie, there's work over here for you, no doubt about it.. My boat needs the topsides re-doing and a few other bits and pieces and I know a few others in a similar situation. Only issue is that it's the start of the summer season and everyone wants to get out on the water!
If you are serious about coming over this way and checking things out for yourself, plan to fly via Auckland, Melbourne and Sydney, PM me and I'll put you on to some locals (both owners and builders) in each place.
