A week ago, Brian and I were starting to wonder how to supplement our bank account without having to fly home. After some brainstorming I decided, well, I'll pull out our mainsail to start repairing it. Might as well start on the list of chores.
Brian off-handedly mentioned my impending project to a sailboat captain that had just pulled in to the marina. Within 24 hours, I had a room (loaned free of charge from the marina manager), a large ripped mainsail in front of me with my tools and machine arranged around. I had a job. ... I have a job. Even though I finished that sail on Friday, just sitting in front of a machine sewing, has attracted a lot more work.
