Boat swapping!!

I am not sure what to name this (or even is this is the correct thread to post on) so maybe a description: I have a wooden cutter (10 yrs old) located in Nova Scotia. The summer sailing/cruising is great but the winters are VERY LONG! I am wondering if there are people out there willing to trade time on their boat during our winter for exchange of summer cruising in NS. I think of this as about a 10 days time frame. I am sure there are many hurdles to jump to do this including equal values, skills, insurance/liability, compatibiliy, etc. Also, many more I haven't even anticipated. But I would like to throw this out to start a discussion. Perhaps you can point me to what has been done before. Maybe it will produce something interesting in the future. Thanks for the interest.
