[QUOTE=richard8000milesaway;25487]dream job? hmmm… I’d probably go back to the Sea Cloud, a large steel-hulled 4 masted bark sailing the Mediterranean (summer) and Caribbean (winter); I worked on her as 2nd officer back in the early to mid 90’s between O&G $$ jobs and the lifestyle was great: fabulous ports of call, beautiful women (passengers and crew), 5 star food & wine, large multinational crew, “european lifestyle”, etc etc. money was not remarkable, in fact I don’t even remember what I was making: maybe 2500/month but all cash and tax free.
the Sea Cloud is still an option for those young enough to enjoy all the perks! if anyone is interested I have all the contacts, since I get emails regularly asking me to rejoin.[/QUOTE]
I don’t think it is tax free anymore. I was told by the tax man that even if it is a foreign company, unless it is 330days or more out of country Uncle Sam can get his share.
