Yes, I am a DIY guy. I have always wanted to cruise further than my local cruising grounds, Gulf Coast Florida, but I had a limited knowledge base about boat repair
. One of the things I did to educated myself was to work in a boat building business for a year. This has given me the confidence and skills I needed to repair
fiberglass, engine and electrical systems. I want to travel to places where there may be no repair
facilities available or insure that repair
issues can be kept within a reasonable cruising budget.
