Boat hand in Chicago

The Exchange

This is a great position on a sailboat, docked in downtown Chicago! Its a lot of fun, but there is always work to do :) We take the boat out a lot so theres lots of good times and you can learn to sail! This summer we have several initiatives going: - Refinishing the wood pieces on the outside of the boat. - Electrical work - Some touch up painting For food we usually use the grill. There are a lot of great options to eat in Chicago.
