your thought's please

just been thinking while having a cuppa, i just polished a stainless exhaust for a guy and the deal was he'd give me some cutters for my milling machine, which he did, ta!.
i was thinking of extending this barter system to you lot, while i have to earn some money i can easily trade what ever you guy's have to offer for what i do, for instance i need a scaffold around one of my chimney's and need it pointed, i need some fencing, an electric motor for one of my pillar drills and so on.
i have in return, as a lot of you know, all the facilities and know how to repair boats, for instance, for you guys it may be a problem lifting your engine off or out, or welding something that still attached to your boat or lift the whole boat off the trailer, for me it's simple.
i do realise that some of you boat on a budget and when things go wrong you can't alway's afford to get them fixed straight away, well i always need something done and i'm also a sucker for machinery of any kind from tractors to motorbikes and of course boaty bits.
i might be talking out of my arse but i do know a couple of guy's on here that will take this offer up and that's what got me thinking.
you're views, please
