This will be a long post, my apologies!
Ok, I have been talking to my sister who lives in Montana and is a HUGE Nascar fan. I have my 32' sailboat with a 4 1/2' draft
. We are trying to plan a trip to Daytona next year and I am looking for an affordable way do make it happen for us.
The dates I'm looking for is Feb.18th to the 25th 2015, one week.
I am asking if anyone here has a slip or knows one who has that can help! No, I don't want it for free but I can only wish. I have a couple of ideas how we could work something out though.
I will have my sister, her husband, my gf and me and to make it more comfortable we would like a slip with shore power
. I don't think it would be comfortable to anchor
out as I have no means(yet) of keeping charged up without running the motor
too much. I have a shower
in the head
and a great hot water
heater to keep us smellin good.
I am broke pretty much all of the time and it will take some hard work to save up just to get the boat ready to get there, then all the expense of the race
and all. My sister will be spending a pretty hefty amount to fly down as well so we won't have much left. I'm not begging here as we will collectively try to share the expense but don't want to go away broke either.
I am a carpenter
craftsman by trade
and pretty dang good at fixing things so I could do a project
. I could even get there earlier and stay later if it's a big project
to be fair I could work off a premium price
for the slip but would expect to get paid for extra hours if it doesn't balance out. That's my best offer I have and I'm sure my visitors can do something as well. You name it, we'll do it! I hope to make us good friends too!
We are good people, my sister will be 50 right after that and I am 46, We drink beer
and have a good time but are very respectful. We would probably go out sailing a few times and I just want to show them a great time.
I'm starting a year early with this plan in hopes of finding what I am asking for and to be able to breath easy knowing we have it all set up.
Please folks, I ask of you to think about this and offer some awesome positive feedback.
