well i had no idea there was a seafarers forum,i should have known tho ,wish i would have found this place months ago !!
the better half of my working life has been commercial fishing in Alaska,but the dam sport guides are fighting to get us out of the water,and they are making headway so its time to jump to another ship
younger brother got recruited right out of high school into the SIU at Piney Pt ,i have been a little envious of him since then too
enough of that jibber jabber
part of my application process requires me to write an essay with at least a minimum of 400 words about why i want to be a merchant marine,thats where i need help as i am only at 250 words and totally stumped on where to go it with now
so in short i am asking for some help ,reasons why to join the seafarers ???
