What kind of work do you do to finance your sailing?
 
How do you afford to sail?

What is your career?

I'm a power broker. I sell C cells by the sea shore.

I had a chance to retire early with a pension and I took it, and I took a cruise. I used savings to buy my boat.

I'm working right now, because family commitments prevent me from returning to where I want to be so bad, for a while longer. :D

I traded a Chinese 4 wheeler I had got for free that had been in a fire, for my '78 Chrysler Pirateer C13, and that costs me $5 to sail on the state lake 4 miles from my house.

I afforded it when i had NOTHING with some crappy garage sale 11' dingy and was happy and content

I afford it with more than i could have ever dreamed of making with a 1970 29' boat and am still happy and content

I love to teach and I love to sail. The retirement plan was to teach sailing.

Become an instructor 11 years before I retired and built up my credentials, experience and network.

LMAO!!!

You think I can afford to do this? Naw, I just do it because life is too short to care about the little stuff….I'm going to have fun while I can.

I retired at 45 with an okay pension, work part-time to help defray the cost of the boat. The wife is an RN and also works part-time. (The part-time part lets us spend more time on the boat).
