Re: Making a living as a liveaboard

I really like, or see the potential(to be more accurate), of a variation of things for barter and sale, combined with as broad a range of applicable skills as possible, and a willingness to make things happen. As mentioned there is always an amount of monies needed for vagrant/visitor slips, fuel, crossing the panama canal, maintenance, and whatever you need but can't trade (barter or sweat equity). Though imagine these to be less in certain spots as compared to others. Some interesting combination of a mobile gypsy vendor, and a sailing the farm sustainability with enough excess to use for trading, and handy-person finding anything that they can do for some amount to help keep those things requiring cash in order. have done it in every other type of vehicle, including several pairs of foot wear, and seen others do it. adapt, diversify, survive
