Aloha and welcome aboard!
Good to have you here and good luck on your 100 ton exam. Now about delmarrey's pics: He was just funnin' with ya unless you think he looks like his avatar. I think everyone here knows how much work boats really are and no one dresses like that except on Halloween.
You've got a great bunch of experience and we'd all like to hear. I've got 3 hurricanes/typhoons under my belt but all done in Navy
ships. The destroyers were tossed around like corks and I always wondered what it would have been like in smaller boats.
