Greater Boston Area

Hello,

I am new to the Boston area, and as I won't be able to bring my 23' trailerable sail boat here until sometime later this summer, I would like to volunteer my help to anyone in the area that could use a hand.

I would be happy to help getting a boat launched and ready, go for an evening/weekend sail, or pretty much anything sailing related. I just have this itch to get on my own boat and tinker, but it's 1200 miles away..

I work normal business hours, but I am flexible outside of that. Special skills include a sense of humor, easy to get along with, an ability to work hard and a decent amount of electronics/computers and techie stuff. Willing to learn anything, and pretty good at figuring things out.

Let me know if you'd like some help and/or company!

I was down by Castle Island today, and saw *one* sailboat out in the harbor. Seriously people, I think it hit 70 today. Are you sur you couldn't need some help getting launched ???

Re: Greater Boston Area

Hi Monstads,

Welcome to the Boston area! I'm just about to go out of state at the moment so won't be taking Jera out until I get back but when I do you're welcome to come for a sail.

In the meantime you should look up The Wollaston yacht club. They should be starting their spring membership drive and they have a social membership option for people without boats yet. When I was a full member a few years ago I think the social membership was going for somewhere around 80$ for the year. It's a great and inexpensive way to get involved in the local boating community. They're a good group of people.

Welcome again and I hope to see you out on the water!

-Ryan

Re: Greater Boston Area

Hi Ryan,

I would love to go out some time, so please do give me a shout when you're back in town.

I'll look into the yacht club you mentioned. Still haven't found a more "permanent" place for the whole family to live, and therfore not sure about the best place for us to keep the boat yet. Still have a couple of months to figure it out..
