I started cleaning boats on the docks at my parents marina in high school. In college, I cleaned boats during the summer and after I graduated, I couldn’t get a job, so I just kept cleaning boats. The big step came when I got insurance, and I knew I had to make a real business out of it. It is pretty simple, you just show up when you say you will and do a good job. I am a one-person shop unless I need a helper for large jobs. The work is tough but I am outdoors and I enjoy the people. When I see my buddies from school, they ask me when I am going to get a “real job”. I don’t brag – but I make almost twice what any one of them do – and I take the winters off.
