My family had the good luck to benefit from someone in your position. We got to use the boat so long as we maintained it properly (varnish, bottom paint, etc.) The owner checked up to make sure things were taken care of while he sailed his main boat. The deal worked for about five or six years, until the owner's children were old enough to take it over. The boat, an H-28, still sails out of our harbor. All you have to do is find someone YOU think knows how to sail, and who's willing to put in some effort (or $) on upkeep.
