I would have stayed in the commercial fishing business and never sold my boat. Maybe I would have made it to Alaska to fish in the Bearing Sea. There has never been a job I enjoyed more than the fishing trade. I would go out for days or weeks at a time and every morning wake up to the fresh smell of clean air and the only noise of the water splashing on the sides. Don't get me wrong, there were plenty of rough days and heavy seas, lots of dangerous work. It was well worth it, an adventure every trip. I've been on a boat that sunk twice, loss all power and engines 100 miles from home once, fallen overboard once and left for hours but all that seemed like nothing now.
The price we pay for family. I had to give it up due to a new young family being started and needed a income I could count on.
Besides Blackjack dealer or Girls Gone Wild cameraman, I would have to say nudie club manager. A friend of mine moved from CT to Ft Lauderdale after grad, and we voted him most successful at our 10 yr aniversary.
If everything was always done "by the book"....the book would never change.
