THOUGHTS AND COMMENTS FROM AN AMERICAN Merchant Mariner
Thursday, September 11, 2014
Well, it went from pretty quiet to total effing zoo relatively quickly. Last minute dicking around with cargo orders and trying to handle routine inspections and vettings and such on board has meant that there hasn't been much time for sleep here on board HAWSEPIPER's Afloat Global Hq/center for sleep-deprivation studies.
Here's something to look at while I wait for inspiration and enough goddamned free time to get a nap.
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.
