Looking to sublet a liveaboard in NYC area

The liveaboard situation I had lined up for this winter in NYC just fell through. Does anyone know of anyone looking to sublet their sailboat from now until early February/March?

It would depend a lot on the boat, but I'm looking to pay something in the neighborhood of $500/month for a boat in a marina or roughly half that otherwise. I'm open to any kind of sailboat as long as I can actually take it out sailing.

I'm 28, and I work at a nonprofit in Manhattan. It's a seasonal gig, which is why I'm only in the city through February. I didn't grow up sailing like some of the folks on this forum, but I did crew on both the Inside Passage and an Atlantic crossing this summer.

I lived aboard in NYC two winters ago, on a little 23 foot boat that wasn't in a marina. I'm definitely fine living without heat. I hung a solar shower from the boom and took icy showers all winter. And one morning the companionway hatch had iced over. It's all worth it if I can go sailing.

Let me know if you have any leads! And thanks in advance if anyone can offer any help.
