Re: Coastal Sailor Wanted
At the risk of sounding like Sarah Palin you are sailing from LA. or L.A. ? Long Beach south to Mission Beach in S.D. ( not South Dakota!) is a good trip with a self serve yard. Also a little further brings you to Ensenada Mexico where Baja Navel does fantastic work ( based on my own experience), but this may not work for you as they allow you to do your own work only above the waterline.
Finding someone to make that run should be easy. I would even be up for that.
