Re: Which Type of Cruising Work ?

I've watched these threads and am also reading, and what I'm taking away from all of it is that one needs to have diverse skills to be able to advantage whatever may come up. don't rely on any one skill. Serve you well on your own boat also

...may be true in theory but keep in mind cost out-lay on a limited budget and the space required for the equipment and support equipment such as generators and such.

Re: Which Type of Cruising Work ?

I'll go out on a limb here and say over the last 20+ years, level of skill by the newer lot out cruising has diminished. I would think anyone with moderate skills in woodworking, basic electronics, plumbing and on-board systems could make a modest income in port.
In no way am I suggesting a person set up permanent shop while in a harbor but a little work to pad the cruising kitty before leaving port would probably be harmless to all involved.
