Free Maintenance in Exchange for Sailing?

Greetings!

I would be interested in a sailing arrangement with someone in the New England area (New Hampshire through Rhode Island) who has a smaller sailboat (22-35 ft) -- such as Cape Dory, Pearson, Alberg, Bristol, Hunter, Catalina, etc, who would be interested in trading maintenance / launch assistance / financial compensation for sailing privileges.

I have a lot of experience and am a 3 boat owner (motorboats) but really enjoy sailing during the summertime. I do all my own maintenance on my boats and have plenty of experience maintaining sailboats (bottom painting, varnishing, electrical, plumbing, etc). I could help you with spring commissioning, ongoing maintenance, projects, upgrades, etc in exchange for being able to sail your boat.

I have US Sailing Bareboat Certification and have sailed the Maine coast and much of Massachusetts with hundreds of hours on the water. I know first hand the expenses and challenges of boat ownership and would treat your vessel with the same respect that I treat my own boats. I am a responsible graduate student and would be happy to provide references.

If you would be interested in talking further, please let me know! Thanks.

Teddy

Could be worse -- at least she's not demanding that you sell the boat!
