Re: Quit life, go sail?

As we don't know what OP's vision is... we can only guess. My guess is that it involves a sailing or motor yacht and not a merchant marine vessel or cruise ship. Camden ME has a bunch of schooners and must hire crew each year and there are numerous day trip charters on boats in Newport for example which also take on crew each year. Newport is a good salty location and you can network. Mega-yachts do Newport in season and likely crew up there. And there are sailing schools, boat building school and sailboat rentals and so on. It a very vibrant fun community.

pay attention... someone's life depends on it
