What do I call this Job

I have to think about retiring in a few years and the idea of retiring into a sailing related job sounds like a great idea. I know a guy that does this in FL. He has a half dozen guys that are older and don't want to give up their boat so he helps with maintenance, sometimes even crews for them. In short is helpful. I would like to do the same thing.
What would you call such a person?

Al the names I can think of like boat B)(*(h etc are not appropriate for a business card.

I thought of Sailboat Mentor or Sailboat Concierge.
The first one does not apply in all cases and the second one I can't spell.

What do I put on my business card?
Keep it clean guys

Not only does that describe the job but it would be a great business name.

It also lets everyone know that you're more than willing to be helpful, but expect to be paid for it. It's not much of a business if they forget to write you a check at the end of the day.

Could be a Boatswain for everything above deck and an boat engineer for everything below deck.
One takes care of the rigging & all items above deck and the other takes care of all the mechanical items.
Both would be very knowledgible about their areas of expertise.
