Is this something you would encourage your kid to do or would you recommend they work a year on deck first to see if they could handle it?
Or would you recommend they never step foot on a commercial boat?
I have always done well in this industry but for some reason my wife thinks i am crazy for encouraging our kid to do the same. I did mention to her that we have never missed a payment and I always have a job if i want.
I think there could still be time for a good career in the engine room. Maybe on deck, not sure what it will be like in 30 years.
