How Do We Make a Living?

My wife and I have a goal of circumnavigating in 2012. We will be in our late 40's at the time of departure. We will have enough money to purchase and outfit a used 40' sailboat. Also, we should have enough money to make the first year in expenses. We like to live frugally, but also want to enjoy a restaurant now and then. My question is this:
What ways have you seen cruisers make additional money along the way?
Would it be better to make it from land jobs, or other cruisers? My wife is a RN with 25 yrs experience(good anywhere) and I am an insurance agent(not much good outside of NY). I am physically fit and speak alot of spanish(almost fluent). Also, very good with people. BTW-we do have a large amount of money in our 401k but will not touch it until age 60.
Thanks ahead of time.
