Need advise

I love sea ...

I dont have a sailboat and experience yet...

I have time to do business about what I love to do...

I like to start from somewhere and make money also ...

My question what can I do about sailboats...

I am thinking to do cleaning but I dont know how can I do and does boat owners needs somebody for cleaning ,it can be hull cleaning ,waxing or interior ...But I dont know who does those jobs I am planing to put some adds to marina boards but I dont want to disturb anybody.

Can you please tell me something if you have time...

I am hoping to learn and sail rest of my life go from US to my homeland Istanbul and Cyprus ...

And if somebody need help I am ready what ever I can .

If I was in your position, I would go to the closest marina or harbor, find the boats and ask anyone on a boat if there was anything you could do. I would offer to work for free for a day hoping that by my efforts I would get solid work.

Don't put any ads up since you don't have any skills to offer. What you have to offer is your labor --- and labor is best bought and sold in person.

To answer your question: "My question what can I do about sailboats..." is that what you can do is what anyone will let you do.

I agree with MV except find the "biggest" marina not the nearest. For every 50 boats you might find someone looking for cleaning and waxing.

I'd pay for it but not very much. Labor is pretty cheap here.
