    The Bocas del Toro area features the indigenous Ngäbe, jungle, diving, swimming, incredible wildlife.

    Also I will gladly share the sailing & off-grid lifestyle if you want. Can teach the parts of a sailboat, how to sail, how to navigate, read the weather, stand watch, drive a skiff.

    Panama - Bocas del Toro - Bastimentos

    Extra sets of hands to help with interior boat work. Basically I need some help sanding, and painting the inside of the boat, and redoing counters. Also general assistance with running errands, helping with projects, etc. Also the opportunity for coastal sailing if the weather and timing works. No real experience needed, but a willingness to learn. Not expecting you to do everything, cooking, cleanup and maintenance is a shared responsibility. Fish cleaning skills a bonus.

    Options in the area. The boat is in Bocas del Toro at a dock. The area has lots of opportunities for exploration, adventure, fun. You will have plenty of time to be on your own.

    Money: I cover all boat, marina and boat operation expenses, which includes your accommodation. Breakfast included, and you can always use the boat and cook your own meals for free.
