  • Description


    Helping finishing the boat outside, painting, sanding, cleaning and renovate a little wooden tender. Also assisting in the engine room. I maintain the boat and engines myself. I am always fixing something so you would learn by helping me. The work on a boat is determined by the weather. If it is very wind we can't do so much. Other days there may be more to do on the boat. Also I would like to build a website about the boat.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    They can visit the area, learning to cook with the owner, meet local people, learning all aspects of a boat. The boating community is very close you will meet my friends who are from all over the world. We help each other out with projects so you will get to visit other boats.

  • Help


    The boat project is to sand down the fiberglass with a pneumatic sander and polish with an electric buffer. I am very sociable, I like to cook. When I have friends whovisit me you would help to clean, taking extra precautions due to Covid. Also to take them out on excursions if they like in the little Suzuki jeep.
