Diesel mechanics, sail repair, fiberglass work and sailing instruction (licensed of course) come to mind. I do know of a young couple that are successfully doing this, so I have a little insight, but not much.
I can see where boat repair skills would be in demand, but I wonder how the locals would see it if you pulled into port and announced you were doing engine repairs. You're competing with local guys who're making their living doing the same thing.
