Is being the owner of a fishing boat a good way to make money?
Is being the owner of a fishing boat a good way to make money? Let's say you invest in a well put together fishing vessel about 70 feet or more possibly a longliner worth over 100k and you are the owner. Is that a good way to make money. You yourself don't have to go do the dangerous job, others do it for you and there is a lot of money in the fishing game with the right amount of luck.Get insurance on your boat in case it sinks or something else happens.
