Re: Hire a "helping hand" in Wilmington, North Carolina?
Perhaps join a sailing club (not yacht club), befriend members and get the drift of who knows what. Eventually the boat
will teach you how to work
on it. I know that sounds crazy but often times it just happens. There are a lot of "pros" here that have just one way of doing things, so take all the info you can and formulate your own way of doing it. Ask a lot of questions here.
