Sail Loot Podcast 045: Shooting The Breeze about our Sailing Money with Jeffrey Wettig

By on January 31, 2017

Jeffrey Wettig, host of the Shooting The Breeze Sailing Podcast, and I have been talking via email and Facebook for a few years. We were finally able to meet in person at the US Sailboat Show in Annapolis this past October. I also got to meet his better half, Nora, and share some grub and a few brews with the two of them.

Recently on the Sail Loot Podcast, I’ve been talking to a lot of people about sailing businesses and very big sailboats. Jeffrey wanted to make sure that I wasn’t forgetting about all of the other sailors out there that aren’t cruising the islands or starting a charter business. There are thousands of sailors that are working during the week while making sure that they are sailing on the weekends and in the Wednesday night beer can races.

Needless to say, this podcast is a little bit different from a lot of the other Sail Loot Podcasts. Jeffrey and I have become good friends. Therefore, it’s a lot like the two of us just sat down to shoot the breeze about our personal sailing finances. I talk a lot more than usual about where I’m at in my process of purchasing a sailboat and Jeffrey explains a lot about how and why he’s on his third sailboat, a Paceship 26 named Pegasus.

About Teddy

I am a 37 year old that just wants to find a way to make a remote income, gather some Sail Loot and cruise the world! I have been sailing for a couple of years now, but mostly on 10 day trips as vacationing crew. I just recently took sailing to the next level by completing my Basic Keelboat, Basic Cruising, and Bareboat Cruising Certifications! I am also Vice President of a Medical Consulting Company, have a Mechanical Engineering degree from Georgia Tech, and have taken several Coding, Computing, and Online Business courses. It's time to share what I have learned!
