Red face Physically challenged and looking for passage.

I have been been recieving cancer treatments for the last two years and need a break...I would greatly enjoy finding a NON DEMANDING positionon on a boat large enough to provide some degree of safety, wide companionway and topsides wide enough to allow for me to negoiate.
Ideal situation would be on a 45' ft or larger boat,two or three weeks of gunkholing south of San Diego or anywhere that is mutally convenient.
i will compensate accordingly...please keep in mind that i am physically challenged,however i'm not a walking medical emergency.

I live in Alaska but can meet anywhere.

If anyone has any great ideas please contact me.
ps,i have completed basic keel boat and basic crusing,I also have an understanding of navigation,sail handling,etc,etc....i just missed the boat,so to speak and now need help to realize a dream that is fading fast...
please pass this on to intrested parties.
Thanks
Kerry

Hi Lucky.

User vega1860 suggested on a previous thread ( Tall Ship Sailing ) volunteering aboard the tall ships Lady Washington or Hawaiian Chieftain.

Their website details a "Two Weeks Before the Mast" program that might be a good fit for you: Lady Washington | Hawaiian Chieftain | Volunteers | Jobs .Wherever you decide to sail, let us know about your experience on the water.
