  • Description


    I am an experienced Captain that has crossed the Atlantic numerous times. I'm semi retired and have chosen to live mostly in the Caribbean islands, living a relaxed life on a boat. I would enjoy sharing meals and showing some local favourite places but also enjoy my own space and time.
    There are numerous activities and friends easy to find .
    My boat needs to catch up on maintenance from time to time. It would be nice to have help with it or with the daily domestic chores to free up my time.
    I'm looking for a few hours help a day in exchange for food and accomodation.

    I enjoy outdoor activities and nature. A heron currently is my neighbour.

    There are waterfalls, kayaking , music jam session , hikes , runs, volleyball , Caribbean experience s.

    Decks need a scrub and polish. Steel needs polishing. Shopping, cooking, wiping surfaces.
    Some wiring could be replaced for those with skills. I'd like to move my watermaker.

    I communicated in Spanish and French at a low level while sailing to areas where they are spoken. It would be good to improve my skills.
