German Carpenter offering Help for Boat Repairs in Exchange for Crew Position
My name is Matthias, I am a German Carpenter and Landscape Architect, currently (as in: End of February) situated in Guatemala, after having crossed the Atlantic, and then the Caribbean. I have been working for 7 weeks on the SV Tenacious, a three-masted barque of 63 meters, and crossed the Atlantic on her. My work on this ship was both as a bosun´s mate and as engineering assistant.
I am looking for work on all kinds of boat repairs in exchange for a crew position on any voyage around the Caribbean - preferably ending in Panama or Colombia, but I am also be interested in sailing around the islands. There is no fixed time frame, and my plans are flexible, so I would love to hear about any trips you might have planned!
Rest assured that I am willing and sufficiently solvent to share expenses, of course. If you are in need of repairs on your boat before embarking on your voyage, I would love to help with any work necessary, however long it takes to get ready - no rush whatsoever. If there is no need for repairs on your boat, that is fine, too! I am ready for immediate departure.
