help?, did I drink to much at the bars?
Okay location... Bahamas
300 bucks just to get in. Sail, fuel

I want to give some of you pounding away in that cube of a office space some real advice.
LEARN, LEARN all you can, a marine
tech gets 105 dollars a hour and 75 just to come to your boat here in Miami
I saw a guy pay 485 bucks for repair he could have done himself for 50 bucks.

I spent 21 years in the Coast Guard so was lucky enough to learn there, but I am alway learning
because things are alaways changing.
Learn to sew and paint
