  • Description


    I'm looking for people to help me finish to build a flotting house.
    Easy deal: I give you a bed (on boat), and you help me by working in board 2 hours by day, after you're free to do what ever you want and enjoy the carribean way of life and turquoise sea.
    The house boat is based in sint Maarten not in Guadeloupe (it s close but it s not the same island)

    Learn how to drive a dinghy, discovering 2 country in 1 island, wake up every morning with a crazy beautiful vue, sun every day, White sand, boat life, sea turtles, turquoise water, snorkeling, gardening on a desert island, barbecue on the beach, happy neighbours, growing trees, take time for relax etc...

  • Help


    Carpenters, woodworkers, handyman/women (first experience in boat is good, instead good motivation)
    It s about painting, build furniture, and finish a deck, fix an inflatable dinghy. Some plumbery too. I need a handyman able to use tools as a grinder, sander, jigsaw, someone who don't have to be babysitte cause I don't have the time for that.

  • Accommodation


    A cabin bedroom inside the houseboat,
    If you are picky just forget about it, all the accommodations have to be fix, right now there is only walls, roof and floor, (but all brand new materials and tools are here) it will be your job during your passage to fix it (from toilets to shower passing by secure the kitchen) so the accommodations will depend of your work.

    No food provide so you should cook for yourself and bye your proper food.
    For shower right now it s a solar bag shower, but as soon as the bathroom is fix you can enjoy a real one. Same thing for the toilets.
    The accomodations will really depend of your work.
