THOUGHTS AND COMMENTS FROM AN AMERICAN Merchant Mariner
Wednesday, February 15, 2012
We got transferred to Philadelphia for a few months for some dock-to-dock crude oil transfers. Somewhat different from what I normally do, and the change in scenery is OK, too. I like New York, prefer it, in fact, but it's nice to reconnect with friends and colleagues. I worked out of this place for almost 2 years, and it's good to be back... sort of, anyhow. I don't like the extra 100 mile commute, but whatever.
I am Paul B, and I spend most of my life at sea. Ships, Science, the life of a mariner, 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 definitely find rants, raves and discussion on life aboard a merchant ship. Come back and see the Brazilian girls, too, who show up fairly regularly.
