Smile Work for Fun

* Yes, I work for fun if I can learn new things.

I have an Electronic Engineering degree and experience with tools and equipments but I would like to learn most of the hard-work needed in a boat.
I love boat, so I would like to help anyone that needs a hand with the boat.
Painting, Mechanical repairs, wood or fiberglass repairs, wiring, etc are ok

I live in the Miami/Ft Lauderdale area and I'm available most of the weekends. Anyone seriously interested can send me a private message.

Thanks

Darn. Well, I wish you luck down in Miami. And if you're ever headed this way again, please let me know.

Dude... take fiberglass work off of your list. I find wiring downright fun. Painting is rewarding. Woodworking is satisfying. Even mechanical repairs have a certain appeal.

However, there is no way you want to volunteer to do fiberglass work. It is terrible. It is toxic to your brain. It is bad for your lungs. Even with an approved respirator, it sucks.

The only way I would do fiberglass work for free is if it were on my boat!
