    That's abysmal pay. I would have laughed at that 25 years ago when I was making three times that scraping varnish. At $2,000 a week you might start to get some interest...

    Simpler still, buy a crew/supply boat. They've always been cheaper than yachts. Now that the price of oil is down I'll bet there are a bunch on the market.

Here's a 112 ft: http://www.oceanmarine.com/detail.cfm?category_current_sub=9&product_id=13355. There are lots of smaller ones. Looks like you could launch a drone off this 47' to me: http://www.oceanmarine.com/detail.cfm?category_current_sub=9&product_id=4522. Here are some nice looking ones: http://www.workboatsinternational.com/crew-boats-for-sale.html including this new one: http://www.workboatsinternational.com/new-build-22-meter-36-pax-crew-boat-its1218.html and this contemporary looking Aussie one: http://www.workboatsinternational.com/crew-boat-svs876.html.

    Still has a way to go to rival the submarine train, here.

    I don't know. The submarine guy was on a tight budget. Here we have a self-made millionaire with an engineering degree from MIT.

    Probably a good time to bring this thread to a close.
