Hello Ashley. Welcome to this forum.
I have a few suggestions for you, based on what you have written so far above. Everything is written in a friendly tone of voice and with the sole intent to help.
1. Post a better description of your boat (details) in your forum "Profile" page/tab "About Me" You should include the basics such as LOA
, builder/designer, type of boat, year built, etc. Then come back to this thread and post a comment that you have added that information to your profile page. That way others in the future will find it by simply clicking on your avatar or name, whereas this thread will likely be lost
to view soon.
2. Upload photos of your boat to a photo
album in your forum Profile. You could start an album called "My Boat Refit" or "My Boat Projects." You can post many photos in your own photo
album. More photos will help others who are curious see what might need to be done and the current
condition of your boat. Photos are worth a thousand words, so even a few photos will show members what is possible or needed.
3. Upload (noncommercial) photos of your estancia/cabins to another photo album (My Estancia). If your offering a stay in Argentina on a ranch as your reward, you should show the potential reward.
Some more frank friendly comments:
It seems to me that offering a reward that is far off in location (Argentina guest room/cabin) or far off in time (someday I will go sailing and need crew…) is not realistic. The potential reward is far away and would cost anyone a lot of money
just to get to Argentina to a remote
ranch to stay for any time.
More importantly, it seems to me that a prudent property owner would want to hire competent, qualified
help to fix up any kind of property, including a boat, especially one that is remote
from the owner. Boats have been known to sink or burn at a dock
, simply because of improper maintenance
or shoddy repairs
or a simple valve or hose was loose or left open.
Most importantly, if the remote owner intends to use that same boat to travel out on the ocean, it is essential that the systems or refit
be done in a good enough manner to work reliably when needed. Your life may depend on that work and how it affects the boat.
So, I suggest you locate a local (SF) professional boatwright or boatyard and have them do the work for you (for money). That way you are utilizing skilled workers and giving them what they want too (money). And, if you are thinking of using the boat to go across an ocean or out "blue water
sailing" I suggest you use the professional shipwright and ALSO hire a SF Bay
Area professional boat surveyor
to do an assessment (check) of the work that is done, before you take that boat across the Pacific.
I hope this helps you. Good luck on your project
and sailing too.
