You will be wearing whites and saying Yes Ma'am & Sir, as you serve them their drinks.
And you will be needing a UK license to work on them.

Anyone want to bet they'll ask you to send money to secure your berth. Sounds like those Nigerian scammers have come up with a new con.

P.S. Spelling, syntax, and grammatical errors are the usual give away.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
