Run a fishing resort but not have to worry about making money.

I would like to own/operate a marina. Wet slips, dry stack, world class service dept., fuel, restaurant, etc. All offered at great prices and I don't have to pay insurance. Of course I'd have managers making sure everything flows smoothly and I would walk around saying "good job" and leave to go fishing whenever I wanted.

Anything besides commercial mechanical work. Good thing tomorrow is my last day in the field.

I'm doing what I love, now if I could just figure out how to make money at it.....


I've turned 12 mil in 5 years just to make pennies...

The marina job that bay pro mentioned would be cool though.

Not trying to one up, but this has always been my thought as well, except I want to own the Caribbean island that my marina is located on as well.

I would like to have a little restaurant near the water with a big boat dock. Serve good cajun food and cold beer!

Done it already, I'm done!
Was involved in the marine industry most of my career....
If your boat is in a dry stack built late 70's to early 90's I'd say there's very good chance they bought it from me.
It was a good run...

I'd go with "sportsman". Those über rich guys from long ago that spend their life fishing, hunting, adventuring, golf, womanizing ...that kind of stuff. All over the world of course.

travel the world via plane or boat (read biiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiig yacht) with my wife and kids

Fisheries management , or national weather service.
You don't have to be any good,accurate,and in many cases you can be completely incompetent
And still collect a nice salary .

I like this.

Really, I wouldn't mind doing what I'm doing but for a few changes in the decision making process and perhaps having the liberty to take a stronger stand on a bit more of the work rather than rolling over.

Money could always be better....but whatcha gonna do.

Would love to run just a local eco-tour on my boat. No fishing, just around to nice little areas where folks could hop out and check out the flats, give 'em a little education as to the life in the mangroves, etc.
