    Description

    I am a retired engineer. I live on a dutch barge just south of Dijon.

    I am intending to cruise down the river Saone and river Rhone in France in the next few weeks. I am looking for someone that can help me to upgrade her internally, plumbing, electrics, carpentry, and painting.

    In return you will learn how to sail and navigate your way to the south of France. There will be plenty of time to explore the Rhone valley and all its history.

    A bike is available and also a motorhome for the odd extended trip.
    Any questions just ask.
