Re: Need helping pondering the idea of a job

Also, be prepared for a huge payout for materials. I get a certain percent down for materials but moorings arent cheap some of my jobs have been 1000 plus dollars for the chain alone. Again I dont mean to burst your bubble but I would start slow. Unless you have a huge amount of capital to start with and customers lined up I would work for a company for a few years before starting your own thing. No offense but a small boston whaler isnt going to cut it for that type of work. You will need to lift moorings to burn chain, swap out, weld etc etc. and unless you have an underwater welding setup and an underwater Broco burning rig your going to have a very hard time.
