I’m a new guy from Alabama and I have been lurking for a little while now. Finally joined the forum. I am interested in a career change and have always been enthralled by a career at sea. I have been emailing the workboat academy about their school, and was looking for a little bit more information. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on books about being a mariner? I have been discussing the change with my wife. She’s not real thrilled with the idea of me being gone for weeks at a time. I was wanting some suggestions on books or websites to give her to read about the lifestyle. Any help anyone could give would be helpful. Thank you for your time and help.
