One of my favorite place's offshore something I have never gotten tired of as a young boy I would get so sea sick but I would keep going out at every opportunity and eventually got over my sea sickness issue. The fact is later I had a reputation for being a heavy weather skipper running in heavy weather became just enjoyable & a challenge specially on a fine sea boat sail or power.
Out here you get a lot of time to think about things it's really how I came up with my first exhaust designs. As a payed Capt. one of this things I always hated was having to clean the exhaust soot from the back deck plus the smell of diesel all day. Just knew there had to be a better way of doing things .
Out here when something goes wrong you have to come up with the solution on your own. it's always been one of the things I always enjoyed about my work. fixing things that don't work like the old way of dealing with exhaust systems.
