Hi - Ok, first question that no one has asked is are you a guy or a girl?
If you decide to take off now and are a girl you will have chance to work on a bigger charter
boat somewhere and see how things are done, and if you don't like it, walk away and it hasn't cost you much money.
If a guy, same thing, except probably a lot more looking.
With your background, and if you can stand 4 more years of school
, you could go to a Maritime Academy. I would go for the Engineer
side of it as they make a ton of money and are ALWAYS in demand. You'd come out licensed as a Unlimited 3rd Assistant Engineer
if memory serves....
Or go to work. Houston
(oil related companies) always pays big bucks - earn it while you can. And since you would be earning a small fortune, you can charter a boat for a couple of weeks a year to satisfy your sailing urges. Again, when done, you had them back the keys and the boat is their problem.....
If a girl, hook up with or marry some guy who earns even more money than you and get a boat together. Companionship and a boat at the same time - doesn't get a lot better than that.
If a guy, entice some young babe with the thoughts of adventure and get a boat together.
You have the world by the tail with your degrees, use them to your advantage and have a ton of fun!
Best of luck!
