THOUGHTS AND COMMENTS FROM AN AMERICAN Merchant Mariner
Monday, April 12, 2010
Also, everyone say hi to Halley. She's pretty much my polar opposite. Wicked smart, feminist, cute, and rapaciously liberal. All things I am not. She's also going to yell at me, I'm sure, for taking part in some sort of gender-based stereotyping because I said she was cute in my introduction. But it's true. She is. If she was unattractive, I probably wouldn't mention it, but that's because I'm polite, but since I'm also a caveman, I speak my mind. This is my house (thumping hairy chest vigorously).
I am Paul B, and I spend most of my life at sea. Ships, Science, commercial fishing, marine biology and (mostly) true stories of life among the best and the worst people in the world, the United States Merchant Marines. You'll find it here, maybe. You'll definately find rants, raves and discussion on the process of climbing the hawsepipe into an officer's job on a merchant ship.
