NC area, available hands

Hey all!

Been sailing some, certified with ASA, but not a sailor yet, by any means.

I'd really love some exposure to boat care, maintenance, and--naturally--sailing,while meeting the sailing community in/around NC.
Helping you work on your boat, clean your boat, or sail your boat sounds like heaven to me.
I'm looking for experience, and I know that experience comes from the daily and monotonous tasks as well as pleasure cruising.

I'm finishing up a degree, so weekends would be best!
After Nov., anytime.

Love to hear from y'all,
-J


ps not looking for lodging, food, money, et cetera--I can manage myself!

Mayhem Exposure to Boat Care R Us. Seriously, this is a good way to get invited. Currently, electrical expertise is most valued. There will be sailing this very weekend, though.

This is like the dump truck you're following down the highway...not responsible for broken windshields, and so on. Feel free to NOT absolve HappyMdR of his responsibilities.

Electrical expertise as in:
1. What's that smell?
2. Watch the needle thingy?
3. Why is it dark in here?
4. I got that tingly feeling, and it ain't puppy love...

This is why I follow high school buses instead... Wait... Nevermind...

Wowsa....

You gotta be careful with this internet market profiling thing...
When I posted the high school bus comment, I was inferring plaid skirts and school bags...

Here's a screen cap after the post... I don't know what's creepier... Me or the ad profiling

Ah, that exposure sounds wonderful! I'm not an electrician, but it would be great to get that opportunity.
Maybe one day this weekend that works best for you?

Great to hear from you all!

Too late.

May change my signature line to "don't say nice things about me...you'll ruin my carefully cultivated reputation."

You're doing it wrong.... Fuses should be replaced with the next higher amp rating until they don't blow... See #1 on the list...

Yea... I am wise enough to know when I've made a mistake, and never repeat it...
