Hi I'm Owen. I live in a boat on the river Avon in the West Midlands of England. For the last 5 years I'v been working in a factory as a designer/ workshop engineer. The work has been good but I needed a change of scenery. So my plan is to travel for a while. Although to be honest its more about meeting new people and learning new skills than the actual destination or travelling in between.
Help with Eco project
low voltage electrics
repairing old engines (pre 1990ish)
basic woodwork, including greenwood
I have experience with power tools.
I have some experience driving tractors, excavators and forklifts.
I have a range of skills but am not an expert at anything. I have worked as a designer, machineist (laths and mills), self employed welder (MIG and TIG, my MMA(arc) welding is strong but ugly.). I worked for a charity helping to fit out a display bus and travelled with them supporting events around England. I have done basic woodwork, worked as an aircraft re-fueller and did an apprenticeship in aircraft maintenance (airframes and engines). I've also done a bit of blacksmithing but just as a hobby.
I work alone a lot, but much prefer to be part of a team. I race with a dragonboat crew, and last summer trained as a race helm to coach and helm novice paddlers at a charity race event.
