Tug Life

I may have to rethink my position that harbor tugboaters aren't 'real' merchant mariners.

 Overheard between two tugboat deckhands:

       "Why are they trying to sell that to me? I can't go ashore, and when I'm home, if I can't drink it or f*ck it, I'm not buying it."

Makes me think about the old saw about the second thing a sailor does when he gets home.

 He puts down his seabag.
