Good jobs involving boats?

As most know, the luxury tax of the 1980's put the nation's boatbuilders on greased skids. Apparently the reductions in the top marginal rates on income and the general good economic health of the country have engineered somewhat of a come-back in the industry. The below article cites the state of Maine's quest to find good long term labor in it's thriving boat-building industry. New career or second career anyone? Details below.

I almost had a job offer flying a B206 off of a mega yacht but I don't think I passed the "Does he look like he would leave the female guests alone" test.

Some people love to build. Some like to breathe polyester resin all day.

Me, I think the fun jobs are the ones requiring a Coast Guard license. You get to drive this luxury condo (or large sailing yacht if you're really lucky) and not pay all the bills.

Bardo is on a distinguished road
Jerry,
I spent many years flying small helos off of the most expensive mega-yachts in the world. U.S.Navy frigates and destroyers. No problem keeping my hands off the guests on those boats (at least not in my day).
