Does anyone here build boats for a living?

I recently started looking into boat building because I thought it was interesting, I don’t have my heart set on making it a profession, but I’d just like to know a little bit about it. So for any professional boat builders on here, how do you make your money? do you just construct a boat from scratch by yourself and sell it for profit? do you work with a team and assemble it? do you work in a factory type place where you do one piece and hand it off to the next worker?

It is possible to buy patterns (full-size models of all parts) on paper by which you can cut out all components for the boat by yourself - fix the dents on plywood with strips of masking tape according to the plans for cutting plywood, trace the design with a pencil or an auto-pen and cut out the part.
