THOUGHTS AND COMMENTS FROM AN AMERICAN Merchant Mariner

Here is another example of a tanker broken in half due to excessive hogging. I have no idea what the proximal cause was of this disaster, but I do know that it is sitting in the anchorage of the Suez canal, which is a bad place to have a broken ship. (Photo credit to Gcaptain.com)
This is happening a touch frequently for my taste.
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.
