What do you do for a living
I'm wondering if Sailboat people evenly represent most employment options or if it attracts people in some jobs more than others.
Of course sailnet members are just a subset of all sailors but it might be interesting.
It does not look like I can edit a poll once started so if I miss your profession, for example I just notice I missed lawyer just put in in a message if you don't mind. Maybe a moderator can add jobs to the pole as they come up.
I know this may be too personal for some. If so I apologize just ignore it.

None of the above. Well, okay, I guess i could massage my ego and answer "management," but being self-employed my workforce is small (me), difficult to manage, insubordinate, and impossible to terminate.
Damn, I sound like I have unionized myself.

As soon as I posted I knew I would miss about half of the jobs out there. I thought I could edit the poll just like a comment but no joy.

How about retired and don't do s--t? Except what I want to. And the Boss will let me!

O darn - there's no category for me. I don't make a living anymore. I gave up trying. Oh well.

I am hoping to be a professional 'flaneur' in the next year or two but stuck in my vote regardless for the time being.

Restaurant owner and cook. Just for fun, I do network installation and maintainance as well as run a webhosting and email service company for small businesses. Keeps me busy.

Seeing that I'm an instructor of marine science. That would put me in tech. & Management. And when I worked offshore it would have been the same.

I checked "technology" because it was the closest thing I could come to in the list.

I am a Marine Biologist with a major Northeastern Ivy-League University; studying whales and marine mammals.
