interested in some work?
while I can't offer any live-aboard solution, I may have some weekend winter work for him if he's interested.
My girlfriend and I just bought a Rawson 30 and are preparing for some pretty serious cruising for a year and a half, and there are two things (ok, 100 things) we would like to talk to someone about:
- re-enforcing old chainplates that are set into the fiberglass. Might even replace them with external ones entirely. Can't gauge the condition so looking for advice.
- the engine is mounted at the very top of the bolts, and should be lower (or the supports higher). This would mean shaft re alignment etc. Also looking for someone to help winterize the yanmar 3gm30F engine and walk us through doing general maintenance since she just clocked 1000 hours. Can read up on it, but it's always nice to have someone who knows their stuff the first time round.
We're definitely not in the "rich owner" category - trying to save on going to marinas and paying top dollar but are happy to pay for good service, so if he's interested in getting paid for a few hours of recommendations, and doing some work if the skill set matches, drop me a line.
We're about 2 miles south of annapolis in Edgewater.
Either way I hope he found a place to crash!
