Newbie - working for experience

Hey everyone,
Just joining this forum and the world of sailing. I have zero experience beyond reading the ASA books in prep for my courses in May. The big plan is to learn as much as possible and buy a boat around summertime.
If anybody is in the Tampa / St Pete area, Iím looking to pay my dues in labor in exchange for hands on experience. Maintenance, repairs, grunt work are all good with me if I can learn in the process. Again, not much experience in the marine world but a willing hand.

See you out there,
