Re: What kind of work do you do to finance your sailing?

When I taught (shop) in mill towns many of my students had no use or respect for education. They couldn't wait to get sweeping floors at the pulp mill or sawmill and eager to tell me how they'd make more money than I. When I moved to upper suburbia on the Saanich peninsula the going rage was sport jocks leading to university. 35 years and I still get visits from my students. One a high liner fisherman, another runs a charter/taxi boat company,several others own high end residential housing companies. One is a male nurse (don't know where that came from) I taught wood work , house construction and draughting but above all ,attitude. Proud of it.
