A peak inside the workings of a ship at sea for anyone who chooses to visit or plans to work on board.I first ventured forth to sea in 1992. I was a little intimidated. It took a while to get my sea legs. I recall jogging on the first day back in port and my equilibrium corrected for motion that wasnt there. I veered straight into a pothole and collapsed! There was a general round of applause from a number of incredulous onlookers and I felt a bit foolish.

Since then Ive learned to get along pretty well living on board a ship at sea having accumulated some 7 years.I decided it was time to write down a few significant things before they faded from memory and that is how this project was conceived.

And so this work features the tale of my personal experiences on board a dozen ships at sea and some 30 ports of call. It’s a useful read for guests who plan to enjoy a cruise anytime soon and a helpful ‘heads up’ for anyone who thinks they would like to undertake a career at sea.“Most folks are intrigued whenever they learn about your work on a ship at sea! Do you like it? Does it pay well? Most non-employees think of cruise ships as a luxuriant party vacation wherein everyone has the time of their lives.

They envision themselves strolling beside the lapping shore, peering into the aquamarine waters of some exotic island destination and sipping frozen tropical drinks to the rhythm of a steel drum band while tempted by any number of willing hard bodies with charming accents... and that can sometimes be true if you are a guest.”“Every season wrestles with some weather anomaly. Generally the winds and waves are more volatile in the winter. It rains less but the wind blows cold. White caps on the water are caused by high winds that blow water from the top of a cresting wave.

In summer the winds are warm and humid. Warm water temperatures contribute to hurricane development. Hurricanes sometimes foster tornadoes (these are called ‘water spouts’ at sea). No matter how you measure it the sea is a fussy mistress. There is a quote on the helipad of the Key Biscayne Yacht Club that says it best:“The Sea Loves Only Those Who Fear It.”
