I would think a larger marina would be more diverse. I mainly want to get a captains license to start a small charter business. My main focus is understanding and learning how the industry operates. Once I get a firm grasp on that, I would be able to carve out a niche. I've been looking into yacht hauling companies thinking that may be a good segway into some of the larger marinas since I have so much experience in that field. Im relatively young (mid 30's), no wife or kids so I would be able to devote all my time to this endeavor. Im a pragmatic dreamer who follows through. I want to learn the correct way and if I have to pump a little gas in return for some worthwhile experience, so be it. Without ever being in a marina environment, its hard to get more specific than that. Any advice good or bad is welcome. If im going to go through with this I don't want to be completely blind going into it.
