This article is no attempt at any persuasion to embark on such a course. Going to sea is not a career decision that someone should be persuaded into. Rather, it should be a decision made by an individual without influential guidance. Often, there already exists the determination to go to sea and little anyone says will change that intention and in that statement , I reflect my own experience.It is important to realise that the sea is not just a career,it is also a way of life and one very different to that experienced ashore.
