Anyone need some help near Montreal?


Does anyone in the Montreal or lake Champlain region (or reasonably close to there) need some help with a boat project? I'm looking to learn and get some experience in boat repair, so that I can depend less on other people when it comes to repairing my own boat. I provide my own transportation, food, etc, and the help is free, you just need to answer a few questions as we go along so that I actually learn something. I'm a super quick learner, and actually know most of it, just never "done" it. IE, I know what you're supposed to do to repair fiberglass, but have never actually done it. I'd rather my first time doing fiberglass repair be with someone who has done it before and knows what they're doing.

Now, since I'm doing this for free, and to learn, I have a few requirements though (or it wouldn't make much sense for me...)

1) You have to know what you're doing (at least a bit!). If it's the first time your doing something, having me around isn't likely going to help either of us too much. (blind leading the blind and all that) :P
2) You have to be doing something I want to learn. Sorry folks, not sanding/repainting your bottom paint for you... Been there done that Some things I'd be interested in learning include things like fiberglass repair, (blisters/wet decks/etc), any kind of woodwork/metalwork, Customization projects (such as installing a windlass/anchor roller onto a boat not deigned for one, etc), rigging, etc. Some things I already know, are things like painting/sanding, and electrical/electronics (12V especially, I'm a bit rusty on 120V/shore power though)
3) I work weekdays. Finish at 5, but unless you're pretty close to where I live (west-island), I'm mostly only free on weekends.

So, anyone out there interesting in taking a relative newbie under their wing so to speak? If so send me a PM

Thanks! Thomas
