hello! I realize this is a super old thread but i have questions and figure some current members can answer them too. I am new to this, this is my first post but i plan to introduce myself and my husband in another post, anyways....
I design and make jewelry now I do this as a hobby that does make me some nice xtra money here in Charleston, SC. I have a website and do many crafty things from painting, personalizing, photography, designing jewlery, invitations and the list goes on.....I think I could knock Martha on her feet if i had the funds she had to do so.....
We are as new as they come to the sailing lifestyle, and are doing our research to see if we want to sell it all and go! Of couse i'm the crafter and want to make things to sell as income during our adventures and help support us.
It would be a lovely thing to have 4 or 5 stores scattered around the caribbean selling 10 or so of my designs,or art, or photographs etc.....

How do you get your items into the stores of the caribbean to be sold?
Do any of you do this?

I'm not a "spammer" i wouldn't even know how to do that!

Seems rather strange that no one mentioned Marlinespike work. Seems like that would be a gimme.

Check out this guy.

I dunno, it seems like a Hobie Cat is kind of small for a liveaboard. I lived aboard a Catalina 22 for 6 months, and that was pretty cramped...

Oh.. Hobbies, not Hobies...

Never mind.

I'm liking the leather work and silversmithing!
How about photography(only need a lap top and a nice digital camera), scuba diving, crocheting or knitting, reading, writing a book, wood carving, hook and loop rugs, miniature boat designing, or...

We LOVED going out in the dink and exploring (of course, we are not Kidless), fixing the head that a 1yo stuffed with tp and began macerating, snorkeling, fixing the head that the 1yo stuck a matchbox car in and tried to macerate, walking the beach and collecting lots of different shells, fixing the head that didn't like the roll of paper towels that the 1yo tried to flush, searching the boat hide and seak style for my mysteriously mising tools that were... yes you guessed it, in the head.

Of course, telling you this, you really will stay kidless!!

HEHE! But it was all good.

Ya know, CD, I'd bet that if you put the head way up there on the wall, about six feet above floor level, and maybe installed some creepy Halloween animatronics around it, the kids would never go near it.

Give 'em each two diapers, one to wear, one to wash, problem solved, right?

Ya don't need a 1yo to enjoy this, I swear, one of these days I going to be at the pumpout and I'm going to see my missing watch go fly by that little window in the hose

I started sportscar racing as a liveaboard, I still race as a landlubber and as soon as I find another boat I will continue to race as a liveaboard. It's not boat friendly but I still do it. It is a lot of fun, as good as sailing and not weather dependent.
