Re: Making a living as a liveaboard

FWIW, the best job I have ever heard of as live-aboard was that of a family I bumped into in North Queensland many moons ago: They had a (rather rare) license to catch Tropical Fish.

A couple of hours a week with a scuba tank and a net was enough to keep them in pocket money whilst they simply enjoyed life in paradise..
