Re: Making a living as a liveaboard

I know of a guy that got a part time job for an American boat watermaker company helping customers in his cruising area, sometimes trouble shooting and repairing their systems, sometimes coming to the states to pick up parts and systems to take back with him to use, and sometimes working a booth for this company at boat shows. I'm sure he doesn't make a lot of money, but he seems to enjoy what work he does. His wife and him live off savings they set aside for cruising, and when the money runs out so does the cruising. This little side line he fell into will keep their dream alive a little longer, and in time they might discover or fall into other ways of making money. His wife is a really good cook, so maybe she might try giving small classes on American style cuisine.
