Question regarding sailing opportunity.

I just introduced myself in the introduction forum yesterday.

Want to retire...young.

Because I want to free myself from my day job, and learn how to sail, posters suggested that I learn aboard someone else's vessel.

I have a culinary degree, and electrical skills. However, I would be willing to help out with any ship board tasks. I'm an able bodied young man and would love the challenge. Unfortunately, I know nothing about sailing.

This being said, If I offered to work for; my basic necessities and to learn "the ropes" of sailing, does this sound like an attractive offer for an employer?

I would be willing to work for almost no monetary compensation. I'm not looking for a job now, but possibly in October to December.

Any input would be appreciated.
