Had an experience a few years ago..
Pulled into a slip in a marina, and after tying up the boat

He offered his help and asked what I needed... I stated that I needed to square up with him on the fees
for the nights stay.............
To my surprise, he started laughing and said he could tell us Americans any-place he traveled around the world as We were the ones running up and down the docks with handfulls of money
wondering who to give it to..
And to a certain extent, he right..
speaking from myself, I have always wanted to be on the up & up and do the right thing, pay for what you get, have the proper papers, and conduct myself in a proper manner.......
And what I've found was that people dont expect it, and government
officials dont have time to regulate it.. There will always be the "Fly-BY-Night" or "Shade-Tree" mechanic
and for that matter, I've hired them myself..
No Body has ever asked me for a business licences, or even if I was legal
There are people out cruising and working, but its rare.. as most have a good savings or income
comming in and work for that extra amount to add to the kitty..
Our first time out, we didnt live off our work but supplemented our living with added work.. we'll be doing the same come this next spring....
