SORRY PEOPLE, WE HAVE BEEN TOTALLY FILLED ON THE BOAT, SO MANY LOVELY PEOPLE WANT TO COME AND VISIT, BUT WE ARE UMFORTUNATELY FILLED THE REST OF SEPTEMBER
We are a son and a father who are refitting a 39 feet sailing boat. The boat has previously sailed across the atlantic (with previous owners), but now it's time to refit the rig & motor in a more sustainable way.
We are building a new rig (junk rig) and installing an electric motor. This is a project about transforming a yacht into a sustainable upcycling project.
The boat is situated in the a charming small harbour in the beautiful Nordhavn of Copenhagen, where we also have acces to a little workshop.
Help with Eco Projects
DIY and building projects
You will learn about craftsmanship in the making of a modern chinese junkrig. You will learn about the upcycling philosophy and about, how to install an electric motor in a diesel motor ship.
You will be part of a small team that is laying the bricks for future sustainable adventures and inspiration for others :))
On sundays, you can join us for our family tradition of having brunch together. We are a very musical family, and if you sing or play an instrument, we would love to make jamsession with you on sundays.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Consider how you could contribute on the boat. We really need people with their own initiatives.
Do you have any know how? Can you use tools or are you a creative? We have limited space, so we like assemble a quality team :))
We hope you can bring something to the table, because we love to give you everything, and all the energy you put in us, in return
It is not free you build a boat, so we both have jobs in Danmark (currently Aste is a sailor & Mikkel is a teacher/musician), so we will not be there full time, but all of our free time is spend on the project. That is why we need you guys! :))
We need help with the following:
- General maintenance
- Sewing the sails
- Raising the masts
- Fitting the blocks & tackles
- Carpentry help for the interior
- Small painting projects (waterbased painting)
- Installing the electric motor
- Boatbuilding! There is loads more to do!🤩
Experience with sailmaking, welding, electricity or woodworking is appreciated but not required.
We expect 4-5 hours help per day 5 days a week. We will not be able to be there with you all of the time, so you and the other Workawayers will have a lot of responsibility and freedom to find projects that fit you :))
This host offers a language exchange
My wife is from Venezuela so spanish speaking is welcome
You will live together with other Workawayers on the boat, where we provide groceries required for all meals. There is a small cooler, and everything you need for cooking onboard.
There are 3-5 beds for accommodation, depending on whether you want to share cabins (traveling in pairs) We have linnen and blankets for sleeping. There is a toilet with hot and cold water nearby, and for showers we offer a primitive freshwater shower on the deck (with curtains of course), or a fresh splash in the ocean! Otherwise you can get a shower in the city for 2-3 euros
