You could always save up what some cruisers call a "cruising kitty".

That option is to work before you leave.

I helped a guy in the Fall with some work. He was sailing from Long Is. to the N.C. but that was in the U.S. .

Better off working hard in the US where there is a better wage and you are able to make good money here. I am assuming lifeguarding is not the best paying job in a beach town. Why not wait tables, bus tables, panhandle or better yet get 3 jobs and work all summer. You would probably make more money in one summer than years of under the table work oveseas if you can find it.
From what i gather most work while cruising is on the barter system unless you have some special skills you can charge good money for.

If I go it will probably be in September. I am about to take a job as a beach lifeguard in South Carolina for the summer. I have retirement money but don't want to get penalized for using it. Also figure it might be a good idea to take care of the old guy I hope to be one day.

I would like to find a job somewhere in another couthry, yes to make ends meet, but mostly for the experience. I will be 32 years old single handing on a 30' Sailboat. I wonder if anyone of you have done anything like this before.

OP I was hopeing for the same but as others have said outside of the US you may risk more than you could make .

I still will have my tools onboard to help others repair (engines ect) what ever may come my way including my old leather industrial sewing machine onboard ( minor sail repair) , but all this surely will be barter .
all I would need is basics hopefully ..water ,food, fuel .. heck I would just help anyone in need even for the company lol .
But all this would have to occur in open water ... just my dreaming but I like to be prepared for whatever come's my way...

Good luck on your endeavours...
