Don't blame you. How crazy can a marine setting be when 105 crew are trained from the git-go that the rig manager is the ultimate boss, EXCEPT during a marine emergency. Talk about a chain of command disconnect at a time when everyone needs to be on the same page, taking orders from one person. I was lucky and only needed to exercise my authority during drills, never during my short career having to deal with a real maritime emergency. Dodged a bullet there, but had occasional nightmares about it.

Re: What Do You Do for a Living?

I used to be in the military as a medic. Then I was a "Security Contractor." Now I work as a medical officer aboard a cruise ship. I work for three months then I am off duty for three months. Druing my time off work, my wife and I cruise.

The Witchdoctor.

Physicist. Wifey's an attourney.

Most folks we meet at anchor/mooring are doctor/lawyer/engineer/business owner types. Not multi millionaires, but upper middle class 'sorta rich' folks.

Re: What Do You Do for a Living?

I am an associate broker for Jackson Hole Sotheby's International. If any of you readers want to buy some property here or nearby let me know and maybe I will get a bit closer to making a living. Since 2008 it has been tough.
