Just one of two stories gleaned from 16 years (out of 20) on sea duty, where I earned the 38 sea service ribbons of which sway spoke (you get a nice little POS for each time you are away from home port for over 90 days, but not 2 ribbons if gone for 180 etc..).

Sway, 8 months on a MPS - one deployment?

I was one of those silly young men that could not afford rent even with sea pay.

No Chuck, it was 8 months in the old Pawcatuck in the Med. Could have gone on vacation after six months as I recall but, with two extra months, I had the time in to upgrade my license at that point, which I did and promptly hopped a freighter for Leningrad. Then years later on the MPS ships in various parts of the world. That was four months on and two months off-spent all my time seemingly in the air. Just as boring as with MSC but some nicer climates than even the Med.
