Help starting up

Hello all,

I am looking at going to work on chartered yachts in the new year and need as much information as possible. I have lots of questions if anyone can help.

Where is the best place to move to to try and get work?
Should I pre book into a hotel or see how I go and how long for ?
Do I pack a suitcase when I go or just take a bag ?
Are there any agencies that can help me secure a job before I go abroad?
How long will is it likely to be until I find a job?
How do I go about handing out my CV's?
Is there man bars or jobs to get broad in the mean time to keep money coming in ?
