Employment opportunities in the boating industry

My wife and I are moving to STT soon and I will be looking for employment in the boating industry. My main question is, would it be worth my time and money to aquire a 6-pack captain's license, and are there ample employment possibilities for someone with a lifetime of boating experience, but no boat? We will be doing a PMV in September. Can anyone out there recommend a good person to speak with about this and other topics?
An OUPV would be useful if you can obtain one - plus STCW and TWIC as many of the boating jobs here are International to the BVI -- a Masters license is usually prefered for most jobs however.
Your questions are better asked on the relocation forum than this travel forum.
Thank you for the input! We are looking forward to living in our new home!
