Can anyone tell me if I sell stock for a gain, can I offset this with the loss from margin interest paid?

i.e. if I paid $100 in margin interest can I sell enough stock with a $100 gain and call it a wash? No loss...no gain..

I already have my $3000.00 limit to write off from the tech bubble days!

Thanks,
ST
