Re: Make-Money-While-Cruising List

What's an online show? What would be the subject/topic/plot? Remember that just about everything not x-rated is already on YouTube and free.

Well, yes x-rated, right from the vberth!Lmao You get paid per minute just like the host site, but a percentage. Quite honestly not a bad deal if your not modest, which on my experience, the boat crowd is not. You can even customize the country so grandpa never accidently gets a peak.

That's a good thing, because my grandpa would be about 130 years old now. Wouldn't want him to see me cavortin' around... come to think of it, probably not many would that would pay.

Shoot... there goes another theory down the drain.

Re: Make-Money-While-Cruising List

Lol, yes I suppose some prerequisites might be required, such as attractive, but for some its an option. Wouldn't have to worry about that $500 a month budget either!

Just sayin'...

Re: Make-Money-While-Cruising List

The media business is one of the hardest to make money at, to make a good 30 min travel t.v. show that advertisers would want to buy time for your looking at $250k+ in costs.

Now, one thing you could do for a quick buck if you have decent equipment would be to get right in front of a hurricane on your boat and film/report it then sell the footage to CNN, you'll prob get $3,500 if your reporting and the footage is really good.

Scrape off the makeup and the hair dye and you get what you see anywhere there is money. Take out the silicone and replace the removed skin and ...........yuk.

I've got one out in the living room, on the couch, with none of it and she beats them silly.

So there!

But I'm not going to ask her to try to make money while cruising.

Re: Make-Money-While-Cruising List

I sailed into the Water Island anchorage in St Thomas early this year - and - the pizza boat guy was gone. It was terrible, had to go ashore to find a pizza. So there is an opening there for your hubby.

Then block island has ALDO!!! The fresh bread guy in a skiff seems pretty well established. Even if his bread was crap you gotta love a guy emerging from a fog with fresh bread booming Aldo!!

Re: Make-Money-While-Cruising List

Big diesel tanks and big water maker. Offer a "bunkering" service for your "spare" diesel and water. Do a short refrigeration course and become an agent for repairs. There is a boat refrigeration company that does this.
