I'm a 911/police dispatcher and I have a lot of time off. We work 12 hour shifts and I only work 14 days a month. I've been thinking about picking up a part time job, but did't want to do anything that would be a "job". I wanted to do something that would be fun, and that I would enjoy.
So on a whim last week, I checked out a local marinas
website to see if they had any openings. I didn't find anything on the website, so I took a chance and sent them a message and asked if they had any openings. I was surprised when they responded and had a part time harbor patrol position open. They asked if I was interested and I emphatically responded yes!
I met with the Harbor Master this morning and got a run down of the work involved, took a tour of the marina, and it looks like I'll be going to work two days a week as a harbor patrolman.
Its going to be VERY nice to have the extra money
, to get the extra exercise by walking all the docks at least once a shift, and gain the experience of being around all the different boats.
The marina has been family
owned since 1958, is a very large 55 acres in size, and one of the largest in our areas. There are about 1000 boats I think, and they range from racing
sail boats to live aboards of all kinds.
I can't wait! Maybe I'll see some of you cruisers in the future!
