It would be nice to spend more time sea fishing instead of working. It would be nicer to do it on a really top-class boat, say a £400k Lochin. It would be brilliant if the State picked up the fuel, maintenance and moorings bill as well, and say £60k a year for me. Fantasy? It seems not. What I should be doing is making a funding case to my local government 'regeneration' body. The downside is that I'd have to take half a dozen jobless obese teenagers out once a week and teach them about the benefits of eating fish and the importance of marine stewardship. Apart from say £0.5m capital costs, I'd touch you all for only about £180k a year for the next 10 years. Then I'd retire. I may even make an offer for the boat - after all, it will have been maintained 'with no expense spared' as the brokers blurb will claim.
Damn. It seems some beggar in Hull has already thought of this.
