Photo Of The Week – 5/17/10

Tug and tow: the Thomas J. Brown outbound from the Kill Van Kull. To all you prospective mates and apprentice mates out there, don’t drink the Kool-Aid. You just can’t learn how to do this on a simulator, period. It’s also not possible to perform these evolutions without deckhands that really know what they’re doing. Attempting to minimize or skip altogether the crucial phase of learning to deck before learning to steer is good for no one in the long run. Are you paying attention, U.S. Coast Guard? How about you, AWO?

  3. Amen
