This infringment thing, I did some canvas
repair on a boat in a marina we stopped in a month or so ago.. The guy was refered to me by the local Canvas
shop as he was really busy and the guy wanted it done quickly.
I'm also a photographer, and sell some through a stock-house, but was recently approched to do a wedding of someone with a boat on the same dock
... The wife is doing some volenteer work today BUT, she'll make contacts and those contacts will be profitable..
Awhile back, I stopped at a marina, it was full but the sales dock
had a couple slips empty, as I approached, I heard them talking about finding someone to wash the boats.. well you can see where this is going, so for washing
5 or 6 boats each week, my slip was paid... not a bad trade
In the same marina, a fellow cruiser pulled in with some canvas work,
Well we all know cruisers are cheep, so the job was in trade
for dinner that night,
his wife cooked a great stew and we all sat around telling stories all evening.
We left 4 years ago and have almost the same money
in the bank as we did when we left.. Our goal,(with avalable money) was to stay out for 5 years.. we're almost at that point right now... and still have our savings.....
