Looking for a mentor to help with boat

Hi there - I'm looking to sail around the world in September to raise money for orphanages. I currently have a 1996 46' Beneteau that is in decent shape but needs some work to get it ready for open ocean cruising. I'm looking for someone who has done a circumnavigation or extensive cruising that could help me put together a list of everything that needs to be done and potentially help me with the work while actually explaining what they are doing. I'm located in San Francisco and could pay for your services but hopefully we could work out a better rate than ~$85/hr that seems to be standard for people working on boats. Any help with making my dream a reality would be greatly appreciated.

Happy sailing.

Evans Starzinger writes frequently here with great material. He & his wife have a great website. Google him & Beth Leonard.

I'm not sure I understand your request. You want somebody to walk you through getting ready? There are sooo many, many checklists from folks who have done these trips it is staggering. All online, too.

Good luck, safe journey.
