Need Help with Boat Repairs


I own a 1966 Islander Wayfarer 33' in the San Francisco Bay Area. Unfortunately, I will be selling my boat, but I need to make several repairs and upgrades before doing so. I am an amateur sailor, having only owned the boat for a little over a year. I am looking for someone to help me with the remainder of the repairs. We should also take her out a few times. Here is a list of some of what I need help with. Some of it is pretty basic:

1. Paint trim on Starboard side/touch up paint
2. Pump Out (I only need help with this because I never learned how to dock)
3. Fuel
4. Oil Change
5. Varnish
6. Fix Lock
7. Hatch
8. Cock Starboard Windows
9. Fridge
10. Jib
11. Paint Boom

Aside from sailing, I am also a photographer, musician and writer. I am want to get some good pictures before I let her go. If you're interested, feel free to drop me a line and we can work something out. Thanks!

None of those jobs seem overly technical. If you have no luck here, try a backpacker forum.. They will often work free/cheap in exchange for accom etc.

I like this post! If I were anywhere near, I'd come past, just for the fun of messing about in boats.

Long list, to grow longer and deeper
I'd consider a spouse, or a LT relationship for that:-)
