Do you enjoy working here?
Yes, I am my own boss here and whenever I feel a little bit down, I see a young happily smiling face and my mood rises directly.

Where did you work before?
I worked on a small ferry in front of Ireland and I worked offshore on bigger ships in the North Sea.

Is this your first time on a Tall Ship?
Yes, I never worked on a sailing ship before.

Do you prefer working on here or a bigger engine running ship?
So far this is better. It´s a bit more chilled and you have more diversity on here.

John ratlos vor der Anzeige
Wahrscheinlich ist es wie an Land auch: Das Problem befindet sich meistens vor dem Bildschirm:)

What do you do the whole day here?
I keep the generator running, try to repair the air conditioning, tell people to unblock toilets, drink tea and smoke.

Do you think that you have a busy job?
It depends, sometimes you work day and night for three days and sometimes I don´t have to do anything a whole day.

Do you think you will continue working here?
Yes, until it get´s boring.
