Hi folks. I've been reading about sailing for a long time. I think it started back with Treasure Island and in the first chapters of Count of Monte Cristo but unfortunately for me, I as born into a family
of land lubers and have little to no boating
experience outside of ski and bass boats.
What I'm looking for is to build up my skills and knowledge slowly so that one day I can sail the ocean! After reading and lurking on this forum for a long time, I decided maybe this was a good place to start.
I'm a 27 year old able bodied male with a drive and determination to get the job done. I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer but I try to be a quick study.
If you sail in Louisiana and need some help fixing up your boat
, I'd LOVE to help you in exchange for you teaching me how to sail. I'm not afraid of some work
. I live in Baton Rouge and I'm willing to travel around the state a bit. If the arrangement works out and you need a cruising buddy for a weekend here and there or even a week or so, I can probably take off work
and make that happen.
If you or someone you know thinks this arrangement could work, please contact me! Thanks,
