Program Details

In exchange for your help once the boat is operational I could give you sailing lessons and a certification of Bareboat, valued at a couple of thousand dollars ( that means you should be able to charter your own boat and captain it anywhere in the world with enough sea time). You will also learn about boat systems and the reality of getting a yacht ready for living and voyaging. Living in Key West there is tons of things to do and enjoy yourself. Afternoons and weekend will be yours to do as you please and explore.


Activities & Shift

There is a list of projects that I need some help with if I want to make my deadline. The projects are quite diverse. No prior marine experience is necessary as I can show and teach what needs to be done. All that is required is a willingness to learn and follow directions. Obviously if you are handy or mechanically incline is a plus.
You will have your own berth. Please be aware the boat is a quite messy since it’s been worked on, this is not for everyone. I want to be completely upfront with you and try to give you clear expectations. For this I believe good conversations will be necessary prior to committing.


Rules

Key West is great area and it has lots to offer. You will enjoy plenty of time to explore and get to know the real Key West. Please be advice traveler can easily get lost here in parting, drinking and drugs. While I am not opposed to having fun in moderation if your intentions are going on drunken benders, this is not for you.
