I need experience you need a grunt. (chicago)

Hello,

I am getting a project boat that I plan to have completed by Mid summer 2009. My problem is my only experience is on a home built dagger board 12ft and 2 times out on a 15ft Oday. I am looking to learn how to opperate a larger boat 20ft +. I am hoping to find some one who needs an inexperienced crew member for things like helping to bring thier boat from winter storage to mooring, weekend help on daysails (possibly even weekenders), boat improvements but also just getting some time out on the water.
I have taught myself what I know about sailing through getting my little snoopy rig out on the water, extensive reading + 1 lesson up in door county. I pick up very quickly and even in the lessons I took I was skippering the boat in 15-18 knot winds within 10 minutes on the water even being completely green. I am a hard worker who is in very good shape. I am a hapily married father of two youn kids who is very trustworthy, honest and have been sober everyday of my life. I also am an established carpenter and craftsmen. Currently I work as a CNC department Manager that gives me access to cnc machinery and Laser cutters and I use them frequently to do little side jobs and projects so I can incorporate that into any upgrades that you would like to make to your boat. I would be grateful for any opportuntiies that are out there and would be willing to even come and treat you to some Starbucks so as to meet and discuss any arrangemnets that could be made.

If you are interested please let me know as I would love to get something figured out by late winter.

Thanks for reading my post,

Gary Daggett

Keep in touch, I could perhaps use some help with upgrades over the winter/spring. I keep my boat at Crowley's on 95th Street.

While I am by no means an instructor...I am out 4-5 times/week in the summer...so maybe I could help you get some time on the water. There are a number of people with boats in my harbor (Monroe) that are often looking for crew.

I definitely will. Let me know of any projects you are thinking of doing and maybe I can help you out. Thanks for the reply
