"soft" income

So, I want to be a full time cruiser in the next couple of years. What do you do for money? I am seeking that ever elusive "soft" income. I guess I could pull up to a marina and play my crazy comic rock, but soon, I just know, they'll kick me off the dock. So, just curious, what do you do?

If the word 'lottery' is prominently featured in your retirement plan, you just might be a sailor.

I have taken to hooking. Sure it's tough work but the hourly pay is great and I stay in fantastic sailing shape. The only real issue is that my mast keeps hitting other boats when mine is a rockin....

Someday I hope to save enough to simply live off the interest, until then it’s the daily grind!

I don't think he would be very successful hooking if he's looking for "soft" income (sp?, maybe a "u")
