Generally, the Marine Tradesman (employee) is poorly paid-recompensed, compared to his shore-side peer. He has similar (analogous) complaints with his employer, as those of the customers.
The self-employed Marine Tradesman can do very well, after establishing a peerless quality for quality and character.
The leading trades, for the cruiser seeking occasional (casual) work (perhaps in foreign ports), are Electrician, Mechanic, & HVACR (in no order). Often, the most employable cruiser will have a combination of those (& perhaps other) competencies.
Hope this helps,
