My mobile marine mechanic hires teenagers for some jobs. He showed up with a tiny little 14-15 year old girl (85lbs soaking wet) to do a job where neither of us could reach a couple of bolts. He held her by her ankles and lowered her down to reach them. (I've tried to write this 3 times and make it sound ok. If you read anything into this you're reading it the wrong way. LOL) Most of them are kids of boaters who are bored hanging around the dock. They get cash under the table, he gets a out of a tight squeeze and the parents are rid of their sulky teenager for the afternoon.
