Re: Making a living as a liveaboard
Met a guy who collected rare shells and sent them to collectors around the world.
A Beachcomber, huh?? Sounds like hard work to me.. Like gold prospecting, if you don't find something saleable, you'll be out there the next day, and the next.. never knowing when you'll get enough for your next meal.
Met another guy lately who teaches English via Skype.
and good luck to him.. That would frustrate the hell out of me!!
