I’m looking to hire a responsible person, ideally who knows sailboats and how they function ( I.e. rigging, replacing lines, tightening up stays etc, possibility pulling down the mast and packing up all the running gear to tow away ) to clean up a 25’ sailboat on a trailer parked at the IMC. The boat is in very good condition, the exterior just hasn’t been loved for a few years. Patience, a sharp eye, and attention to detail is what I’m looking for. I’d like to have the following done -

A basic “ touch everything “ detail...

thoroughly, and carefully pressure wash everything from top to toe, top of the mast to the bottom of the trailer.

Clean all surfaces inside and out, including rigging, there’s a bit of the classic northwest green lichen, wanting to crisp things up.

Sand and oil all teak surfaces, fiberglass boat, mostly trim, door, handles, gunnels, cockpit, tiller, and other little bits hear and there.

Light sand and bottom paint.

I’ll provide all materials, pressure washer, and tools as well ( I’m a bit short on hand tools right now, if you have some that would be great or I can get what is needed )

I’m hoping to get this done soon while we still have nice weather and get her in the water. It’s a good little job for the right person. Hourly or a fixed price, let me know what you would like to be paid to do the work and we can go from there and figure out the details. I have lots of other work available helping out on other projects for the right person.
