Pret' good.
I'm at work, but this post is totally reactive. They don't much care what we do when nothing's going drastically wrong.

Like a $12,000,000 yacht sinking at its moorings.

Hasn't happened yet, so...

I'd love to work on some billionaire's yacht - I'd imagine they pay well?

I'd imagine they do.

Alas, I work for the shoreside security company.

They do not.

Oh, well. Beer money.

One has a weakness...

And I'd imagine you do. Seems like you'd have a decent climate for grains, and there's enough Micks around to get you started.

Prolly enough Scots gits, too.

From what I hear yacht jobs donít pay too well. There was a BBC documentary a few years ago about it but canít find it online.

Here is a chart I found for yacht jobs average salary data
http://www.crewsalary.com/reports.aspx...

Compare it to land based equivalents for cleaners, cooks, servers etc

We do. The fact is, that shipping whicky from Scotland in the 19th century was a huge mission, to say the least.

So the Brits in the Cape then decided to brew their own.

Got a buddy of mine that used to CAPTAIN a private yacht out of Ft Laud a few years ago. He (at one time) Captained the worlds largest private yacht. He now owns a yacht brokerage in Ft Lauderdale.

Nicest guy you'd ever wanna meet. Real down to earth.
