It would be great to still be living in SD but I really love Margate. It's a year round town, great nightlife, and lots of decent surf spots between AC, OC and towns south. The pay is really good so it gives me a opportunity to travel somewhere during my month off.
I looked into getting a Job on the tugs when I worked for the ferry . I couldnt come up with any info.

Right Now I and a diesel mechanic for Pepsi. I like the job I got good pay , Time off, and awsome advancment. Hours are 12 noon to 8:30pm which isnt so bad . I get my weekends off too which is a plus
