, painting, and I'm even a great cook. Now I won't say I'm restaurant grade but I can whip up a home-style meal with whatever is on hand. My former colleagues refer to me as MacGyver because I can fix anything with nothing. I feel they are too kind but I do find a big feeling of accomplishment when I have the chance to save the day. If you need someone that is not a certified sailor but more of the guy that can and will get anything done then you should give me a try.
Take a look at my "crew wanted" post on sailing the Philippines
, and PM me if interested. Your MacGyver skills will no doubt prove useful in this part of the world. Also, I used to ride Gator Freighters as a PACE instructor, so we'd probably have lots of "war stories" to share : ) Best regards, G2L.
