Full time dredging

Anyone out there into it full time?
Hobby or serious?

The maths works, but the reality is a different story.
Floods are the biggest problem, especially here on the coast. Also depends on your financial situation.
Mortgage free etc. Full time takes a fair bit of the fun out of it. I find its no better than wages, but I love it.
Wouldn’t do anything else these days.

It depends entirely how good your dredging claim is as to whether it is worth it or not.

If the gold was as good as in your dredging days it would be a good money maker!
