merchant mariner families

...a highly unusual, sometimes maddening,
but mostly comical way of life.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing your experiences! I have recently started dating a tugboat captain, and it is so nice to find a group of people who live with the challenges everyday. :) I'm looking forward to getting to know you through your posts, and learning how to handle the challenges that come along with having a boyfriend who works offshore with humor!

  2. No problem and it's wonderful that you've come aboard, so to speak! It helps so much when someone else knows exactly what you're going through.
