Re: Sailboat as my office

ive been having my office on a sailing boat for the whole summer.. too hot to sit in the office.. most of the meetings was through skype or on the phone and between those i jumped in the water to cool down.. was great, just cannot imagine anyone from work visiting me.. as it was a racing boat we didnt have much space..
if you find the right boat, the only problem may be the marina you put it in.. not very nice to make your visitor walk through the whole marina and across the long pontoons to get to your office..
all in all i think its a fantastic idea!

Re: Sailboat as my office

I can't imagine trying to actually write code while standing watch underway, or being coherent enough to do so after/before watch.

Don't let that stop you, there will be plenty of time laying at anchor/marina's.
As to the taxes, see a tax professional. I don't let just any of them them tell me how to sail, why would you want a sailor to advise you on taxes?

Lessons learned are opportunities earned.

Re: Sailboat as my office

Thanks for the info guys. I'm looking at buying a leopard 44 catamaran. Nice, stable, comfortable, and a lot of room. I don't need to meet clients, not a problem there. I don't really have to code per say, I reskin app gaming codes. My job is themes and marketing. I have a developer and graphic designer that work for me via telecommute. All I'd really need to do is spin enough themes for the time I am at sea, and honestly I wouldn't have to do anything for an atlantic crossing. If I come up with some themes underway, less work while I'm on the hook. I can literally create a months worth of work in 3 long days. My team that I pay very well will do the heavy lifting.

I've broke my ass for a chance at doing something like this. As long as I can get to a wifi connection, or an air card, once a month I can mass upload the tasks for my team and continue seeing the sites and exploring for another month. The beauty of app reskining is that once they are uploaded to the store they don't require any labor and they earn money as you sleep.
