I have been obsessed with boats since I can remember. I had a good job selling Cigarette, Outerlimits, Skater, Formula, and Baja all under the same roof. I think I was 25 at the time, also have a degree in marketing. One day while sitting at the shop on a Sunday, wishing I was out boating, I realized, I don't want to sell boats, I want to OWN boats. So I started a construction co. in FL and now I own boats and am much happier.

I could be wrong but I got a feeling the E-Dock that was built at my marina in the 60's was there way before your buddies E-dock..........

The day you make your hobbie your job is the day you have to find another hobbie.

I am 25 and a Mechaincal Engineer for Shaw Development in Naples, FL. When I moved down here a year ago I thought about getting into the marine industry but many people in the industry talked me out of it because it is my hobbie. My addvice would be to find a location that you like to live and then find the job.

Excellent point! That's essentially what I was trying to say when I said, "It might even take away your passion for boating."
