My brother and I have been cruising the Bahamas
last winter and would like to find summer “boat work” in the Mid-Atlantic or New England
. The location would have to be somewhere we could live aboard (preferably on anchor
or mooring). We are open to all work possibilities, but would like to learn or improve a skill rather than a summer of slapping on bottom paint
(not that there’s anything wrong with that). We’re both in our 20’s, easy going, and hard workers. We have learned quite a bit restoring and maintaining on our 40’ sailboat (diesel engine/mechanical, electrical
trouble shooting/using a multi-meter, varnishing/brightwork, etc). My brother is also a good cook and a “people person.” I have a USCG captain’s license
(soon to have master upgrade). Can anyone recommend the best locations (ie Newport
, Annapolis) or possible jobs/employers?
