    Try contacting the builders of the type of vessels you are interested in designing. Did you mean out of college without experience? Either way you will not have much right out of school. If you make enough to eat & keep a roof over your head, while doing what you love, I'd think that would be a good start.

    Take care & good fortune in your endevour.
