Make it very clear to your Captain from the git go that you want to learn as much from him as possible and include him in your activities without being pushy. He or She may want some alone time as well. Enjoy!!
Will do. I wish we had a definite time we knew we could be down there but we don't so we'll deal with that as we can. But I will definitely take your advice. It's usually better to be up front and make sure everyone is on the same page. Thanks again.
