I am a sailor living off-grid and traveling around the world. At the same time, I am creating a sailing school where I will teach guests how to sail and live off-grid. At the moment I'm preparing the boat for the sailing school by making repairs and upgrades.
Also, sometimes I do charters to pay the bills. I am on workaway to find different types of help like:
-Specialized help (now fiberglass and gel coat, other times charter chef, video editor, electrical engineer)
-[not requested currently] general boat work (list in the help requested section)
-crew for ocean crossings (spring 2022 Pacific ocean crossing,. It will take about a month to get to french polynesia, prefer crew that can speak french)
As you help me you will practice/learn about; off-grid living, sailing, and caribbean water sports (apnea/freediving, kayaking, paddle boarding, etc).
The boat I have has 4 cabins and can sleep 8 people. It was built for making charters. Sometimes I invite crew to sail with me because it can be nice to have help.
Currently the boat will stay in or close to Panamà so i can make some repairs and upgrades and create the school.
At the moment I want to find someone who can make bench seats on top of the roof. I will provide all the materials and tools. I just need someone with skill and knowledge to choose the best materials and experience making something like this. Please tell me about your experience when you message me. In exchange you will get room and board in a beautiful location in the Caribbean (google Portobello, Isla grande, San Blas).
Also, I will apologize in advance if I am slow or bad at responding to messages...and I get a LOT of messages. We are out of cellphone service range a lot of the time, and I'm a sailor, not a recruiter.
Thanks 🙏🏽 Steven

I'm learning Spanish.
You will have your own private cabin with a queen size bed and a private bathroom.
In your free time you can use the boat equipment including: kayak, paddleboard, snorkeling gear, or fishing equipment. You can take the kayak to the islands or mainland.
The boat does not have wifi, so you will need to get a sim card and mobile service, it costs about $3 per week.
