    Doug, Interesting insight -- thanks for sharing it.  I started out at the
    Canadian Coast Guard College 30 years ago, but quit when even at that young
    age I decided I would rather have family ashore than spend a life at sea.  I
    never could figure out how to have both.  So I do envy your 19 years, Doug!
    I need your observations on big-ship navigation at sea in order to live my
    "other" life vicariously.  Keep them coming.
