How To Earn Money While You Live Aboard A Sailboat. Cruising Jobs.
Some Ideas For Live Aboard Jobs
You don't have to be rich to live on a sailboat. There are a number of ways that you can make a living while living your dream and sailing from place to place. First you should take an inventory of your skills and determine which skills you have that are marketable anywhere you go. I was fortunate to live aboard my own sailboat while sailing around the Caribbean for three years.
I did so not with inherited money or
winning the lottery but with saved money and working along the way to earn
cruising money. Although there are rules against working in the countries that
you visit there are many opportunities in the gray areas such as performing
services for fellow sailors and the barter system is also alive and well with
live aboard sailors.
Providing Services For Other Live Aboard Sailors
Either way the only things you will need to own
are items such as scrapers and knee pads.
Writing Jobs, Blogging and Web Based Jobs
Some live aboard sailors have found that writing is a good way to make a living. Consider starting a blog or website about your journey. You can monetize your site by joining Google's Adsense program, Amazon Associates, eBay partner Network and other such programs. Good writers can earn income by submitting sailing related articles to magazines such as Latitudes and Attitudes and Cruising World.
Since almost every marina and ship's store you visit when cruising US waters takes credit cards, consider become an agent of MatchRate Plus, a company that matches the percentage the merchant pays on credit card transactions, plus gives them cash back. It's as easy as leaving a 10 cent business card when you check out.
