Since graduating from University two years ago it has been my dream to sail around the big blue sea as a deckhand on a megayacht. Before pursuing this dream, however, I spent two years traveling around South America, learning Spanish and learning the most important skill, the language of love I have recently returned from my foray, and have moved to Ft. Lauderdale to pursue my dream at last. I have found, however, that as green as I am getting a deckhand job is not the easyist task. I am very personable, the agencies love me, but it's hard to get a captain to give my CV a second look with out any sea experience. I've been getting ocasional day work, but landing my first job on a yacht is proving to be tough. So, captains, any suggestions?
This Memorial Day, remember those who were lost serving our country on the high seas in the U.S. Navy aboard PT Boats. Recently we were invited out for a ride on the only operational combat-veteran PT Boat, PT 305 in New Orleans.
