  • Description


    My barge was design and custom built as a liveaboard home. While crafted to a high standard, like most boats there is maintenance and upkeep. I have a list of woodwork items which need attention and smaller handy-person items, along with cleaning, rust proofing and painting.

    Focus items, for now, include given the deck area a new coat of paint, and the engine room the same attention.

    This would ideally suit someone who is opening to working for a few hours a day and then going off walking along the Thames Path or cycling around Windsor Great Park.

    I mostly work from home, tho sometimes work away from home, but would like to be constant discussion and would always be available for questions and to discuss projects and what needs to be done.

    My preference is for shorter term workdays. No longer than one month.

    The first project would be to clean, treat and paint an underfloor hatch area. There is also some other painting and fixing jobs which need to be done. Some experience of electrics would be useful, as would great care and attention to detail for the painting.
