    We would like a helping hand with our specious house,small greenhouse,small garden and boat including on boat-trips. The boat is made to sleep onboard in ;- so longer trips for days is a part. We have had the boat for many years. As helper of an active user of wheelchaire - many things will have this part as a challenge and a field for learning as an extra thing. An accident at work made this extra challenge to life ;- a challenge taked and found many solutions to.
