  • Description


    Hello everybody
    I'm involved in a really nice project.
    And I need one or two people to help me out during this months period
    I'm a sailor from Spain that sails oceans and I'm getting this boat ready for the best of them all.
    I'm also a massage therapist and would love to help you if you need to.

    I'm on a classic sailboat with beautiful lines and a bit of work to do.
    And whiles I'm getting ready to sail off, hopefully end of the month I will need some help from you!
    We need to get this boat ready
    I'm getting all the parts we need to be able to work but I'm by myself and would love some help
    I can accommodate two people (2 and if you are a couple + 1) for now and can offer beds and food and some beers if you need. I'm not a big drinker but don't mind

    Because the days are short we would start earlyish and end early too

    I need people that can be handy with tools and sand paper since I need to sand and prepare to varnish

    Then when our engineering job is done we will have to put the shaft together and eventually the rudder
    We have all we need to work
    I just need you guys
    I hope to hear from you soon

    Ps. The boat on my profile is not the one, but it's me on the photo
    I just didn't put a photo from the boat to keep it to ourselves
    It's a good project and if it's possible, maybe one of you can join me on the passage
    We're heading to Indonesia and going through the islands too
    Lots of sailing and hopefully
    Lots of surfing and good times
    Hope for the best
