New member (WITH TOOLS! ) in Maryland

Hello,

My name is Charles. I am experienced in ship building and repair. Most of my sea miles are on motor boats. I am looking to get some experience sailing also just have some fun. My better half would also like to sail with me.

I live in Columbia, Maryland. I am well tooled out for mechanical, fabrication, and repair in wood, steel, aluminum, and fiberglass. I also have 2 CNC robotic platforms (1 laser table and 1 router table) out in the shop. I can make just about anything in wood, steel, or aluminum. Yes we speak CAD files....

I have always owner motor boats on the Chesapeake, but never a owned sailboat so I am looking to learn.

I am quite capable of helping out if you have some maintenance issues... other than fiberglass there not much i have not done.

Should you still need some crew, let me know I would be happy to help out with some of your upkeep.

Thank you!

Charles

Welcome aboard, Charles,

I liked your post.

However, you might find it a little warm in Singapore, it's quite equatorial.

Very generous offer of yours. Good on ya.

Ann

Welcome aboard.

I might suggest you also post in our Classifieds under "Crew Positions". I think you could get a great response.
