Why don't you stay at your job (if you work near the coast) and live aboard your own catamaran.If you work too far from the coast find another six figure job to allow it.

My dream is to retire and buy a Chris White designed Atlantic mastfoil 47.

Look close at that design. I love the forward helm.

I do not see you owning your own boat at any time if you decide to work for 36k a year in Hawaii. You would be lucky to rent an apartment and feed yourself.

I think this is sabotaging yourself. You obviously do not appreciate the fact that you already have a lucrative job.(at least according to your title)...something many people would give their eye teeth for....yet you are thinking about throwing it away for what you think of as an adventure.

Think logically....Wait staff, cleaning the decks, making beds....waiting hand and foot for people on their vacations. And, I'll bet the 18 an hr is just for when you are working....Likely not 40 hrs a week....and insurance?

Why not do something adventurous on a vacation.....then if you really decide bailing on a good paying job to work yourself silly and live just above the poverty line in one of the most expensive places in the U.S. at least you'll know what you are really getting into.

This thread is just as ridiculous as most of the others the OP has started on this forum -- "Why do some of us LOATHE the hotel scene", "how come the architecture in Hawaii is lacking, when you compare it to say, Funchal, Portugal?", "why doesn't Hawaii grow its own stuff?", etc. etc.

Kinda makes you wonder what he's going to come up with next? I do enjoy reading the (mostly) amusing replies!

If you want to leave CA at the drop of a dime, go for it. Make sure you have enough funds to cover yourself.

Have you considered the possibility that you're the reason people endorse sepukku? To answer your "question", a low six figure job in Cali is nothing. If you're young, take a sabbatical and party in Hawaii. Life's too short to live with regrets.

I'll play the game.

The odds of you getting $18 hour is zero. The odds of you getting the low end $14.50 hour are practically zero. They'd have no interest in training a dreamer.
