SEA is Meant to be SAILED upon

  • The ocean is a mariner's factory.  When you successfully face a storm at sea, you're one storm closer to becoming a true mariner.  Surviving a single storm at sea may not make you into a mariner, but it's a step in the right direction.
  • Becoming a mariner takes time, because it requires years to get to know the sea in all of its moods.  You can't get to know it from books.  You can read about it all you want, but until you experience it first hand, you won't understand the wiles of the sea.  You need to put thousands of miles in your wake before you know the sea and know that you know it.
  • Becoming a mariner is a catch-22 situation.  You shouldn't go to sea unless you are a mariner, and you can't become a mariner unless you go to sea.
  • Knowing the sea, and knowing that you know it, isn't impossible, it just takes time.  If you are patient and put in the time, your confidence will increase, and you will know that the sea was meant to sailed upon,  You will become a true mariner.
  • Even till today Sailor and his Ship still remains unknown to the average person! How ships cross the oceans, how cargoes are converted into packages delivered by the postman, how oil is transported from the Middle East and Scotch Whiskey ends up in Japan is never questioned. These things happen and nobody feels the urge or curiosity to investigate further. And so, when confronted by a seafarer’s workload the mind goes blank! “My car doesn’t carry an Engineer”, they mutter, “so why should a ship need one”?

All I can tell u now is : Sail the ship and you will remember the experience at sea and feel of ship for whole life and obviously working on ship is not everyones play.
