    Jerry, As you may already know Sarasota,Florida and Tampa....or Fort Lauderdale area on East coast are perrenial places to find boat-building jobs in Fiberglass...things seem to be picking up around here again,Chris-craft is hiring(the former Donzi plant) the old plant in Sarasota closed 3-4 years ago. Wellcraft left Bradenton 3-4 years ago too...but there is still a fair bit going on by the Airport here (Chris-craft)...If I were you I'd keep doing research in the traditional boat-building areas...North Carolina has been a good place I think too as it is cheap for builders there and the whole NE market is a a short truck-haul away to the north...good luck!

    And North Florida as well... I don't know if my job is a "good" job, but it's pretty easy going.

    What part of the country are you in?
