I am interested in helping you. The time frame I have is between December and March, December would be best. I would like to know more about the equipment you have on board, most importantly safety gear such as EPIRB, lifeboat, radio, jackets, &c. No less important the other systems such as electrical and sail inventory. Please contact me on bearpalomo at the yahoo(not putting email address in format as according to the moderators, it will be picked up by bots) Cheers!
