Re: Vanishing Seamanship
all of 'em, when I watch them are in my opinion, pretty crappy boat handlers and problem solvers.
Aaron unfortunately there are a lot of captains out there who think they're good seaman if they make it into the slip without ripping out dock boards.
As a commercial mariner with a lot of miles under your keel, what do you look for and what do you consider signs of good seamanship?
