As I said before, if I could go back to school, I''d take up (in order) diesel mechanic, refrigeration/air-conditioning repairman, or electrician.
One can always crew, but having a skill that''s in demand will always put you at the top of the list. Who knows, maybe you''ll enjoy it so much that you''ll want to go on and become a marine engineer.
This isn''t nautical, but the guy who installed the windows on my house put them on in 2 weeks in the dead of winter. It was cold work that I would not have done. He also makes enough money he can safari in Africa in the winter, Alaska in the summer, and take side trips whenever he wants.
Learning a trade will help you for the rest your life.
