Bash, when you really try to simplify and generalize the topic, the way to make money while cruising is by having a valuable skill that few other people have. Which is also either not going to be regulated, or is routinely practiced ignoring regulations
So I thought about that, and I'm just not pretty enough to be a gigolo. Don't ahve the fashion-sense for the job, either. I'm just not qualified.
Then I figured I could be a bank robber, but I was afraid that with my language skills, I'd wind
up giving folks the equivalent of "I HAVE A GUB" and not being taken seriously.
After days and days of making lists and pros and cons, I finally got it right. I've been making money as a full-time professional hit man, hand over fist. In any civilized country, you can charge about the same thing as an average year's wages (for the common man) and beat the going local rate for a hit. And, since you have access to blue water
and dumping, egh, cruising grounds where the water
is deeper than trawlers and what's dumped stays down, you have the unique means of disposing of the body in a fairly reliable way.
Now of course, with gun laws being so strict these days, you go through a lot of clothing
bills and steak knife sets, but hey, that's just the cost of being in business. It isn't the business for everyone, but if it was, I couldn't charge the rates I get!
So, put up a big pot of coffee, get out the yellow pad, make up two columns for "pro" and "con" and another pad to list your special skills, likes, dislikes, and I'm sure you'll find something equally unique and profitable. Just remember, pay your taxes
, that's what they got Al Capone for not doing.
