Working while cruising?

I am new to sailing. I have been wondering if it is possible to find work while cruising the bahamas or virgin islands.I am 22 years old and am wondering if i could make this a reality.

You might try doing a search. Lots of posts on that.

Bottom line, lots of laws against it. (working in foreign country without a permit)

I've thought (for about 5 minutes) That should I become a live aboard; My son would join me and We'd travel the coast with all the equipment tools and refrigerants needed to service,install, or help owners with their boats.. but basically? Most will DIY and keep trying until the cows come home instead of paying a "pro" Also I don't see any Marina allowing people seeking work to intrude on their territory. So cruising and working and finding work imo must be something that doesn't depend on location. Things like internet based biz, consulting, charters, etc may be the best choices.

There are the US Virgin Islands and there are the British Virgin Islands. Yes, as an American citizen you can legally work in the USVI. You could also legally work in Puerto Rico. Any other islands in the Caribbean, though... not legally.

Don't forget Guam. That is also a US territory.
