Re: spent my life savings on a boat, looking for work.
Harbourless: I don't believe the OP is a live-aboard, or asking for advice on doing so. From the sounds of it, he has financed the purchase of a small sailboat, and would like to continue making payments in order to be a responsible person and meet his obligations.
He seems to be reaching out to other sailors in the hopes of some help getting work.
Sailorneverdies: I'm sorry I can't be of more help, being on the other coast, however I would recommend a bit more of an introduction, and maybe a bit of info on your background, and work experience, in the even that some people here might know of some work for you.
