trade your skills for living on my sailboat

Looking for someone to live aboard my sailboat in Ala Wai marina - Honolulu, HI in exchange for doing some work on the boat. It is a HUGE project, not expecting you to slave away on it, just make some progress. Boat was a liveaboard for several years, not maintained. (some) electric works, water/head does not, not sure about engine.

Ala Wai SBH is at the west end of Waikiki beach, 2 blocks from Ala Moana Center (huge mall/shops, bus/tranportation hub for the island), 3 blocks to Walmart or Safeway, paddling distance to great surf breaks.

If interested, let me know what skills you have - electrical, woodwork, plumbing, sand/seal/paint, etc - she pretty much needs a near complete refit, so.....
