Sailing Vessel Tenacious by MerchantNavyCadet
Sailing Vessel Tenacious
The Jubilee Sailing Trust's Tall Ship Tenacious moored at Alderney, Channel Islands. I had the joy on working onboard as the supernumery Officer Of the Watch. Tenacious is the world's only tall ship designed so people with any disability can come aboard and discover the joy of sailing.  
Nord-Pas-De-Calais by MerchantNavyCadet
MyFerryLink's Nord-Pas-De-Calais laid up in Port Of Calais after MyFerryLink went out of business and then the port was blocked many times by striking staff. 
Firstly, no I'm not dead or missing. I've been busy mostly with full time unemployment for the past few months. Retook the bridge simulator course back in October with no success. Managed to get a weeks work serving food to passengers on P&O Ferries Pride Of Canterbury, then not much since. However today comes great news. I retook my Orals exam at the Cardiff Marine Office and I passed! It's a big hurdle that I've overcome and believe me it wasn't easy. Now only one thing left before I will be qualified as an Officer Of the Watch, that blasted bridge simulator. Well that's it for now, thought I'd share the good news.

Hey man,

I've been one of your followers for a couple years now. I'm an American art student, currently studying abroad in Singapore, specializing in 2D concept art and 3D scultping. I'm writing this because over course of my study, your photos have been invaluable references to me. Not just as references for varieties of ships or locations on a ship, but for cool examples of camera angles, perspective, lighting, etc. Hell, the sightseeing you do in all these different places has been wonderful material as well.

I've kept up with your journals too, and its been nice to hear now and then how you've been doing. Was bummed to hear about your orals exam by the way, and I hope your second try goes well.

But yeah, I just wanted to say thanks for posting great photos, as well as serving for all this time. If our locations and free time sync up, I'd happily buy you a drink.

Made some photo's of the Hyundai Singapore passing Flushing today coming from Antwerp. It was raining cats and dogs most of the day , but the rain stopped for a few minutes. The photo's are not so beautiful if I wanted it, let me know how can I sent some of them to you

You asked me if I could wacht for the MV Hyundai Singapore when arriving this week at Rotterdam. Hoek van Holland which is the best way to see ships entering the Nieuwe waterweg with as destination Rotterdam/Europoort is at about 2x3 hours travelling from whereI live and you have always to be lucky at Hoek van Holland with the weather for making photographs. The weather conditions in the Netherlands are at the moment quite windy. The whole days we saw just one (sic) ship entering the Schelde with destination Flushing or Antwerp, Belgium. There is a possibility that your ship is going to Antwerp, if so I will make photographs for you

That's very much. And when I was on board we were going to Antwerp as well. It was going Europort, Felixstowe, Antwerp then Le Harve. I'm guessing with the winds were so high, Maas Approach were not letting ships come in or out.

Spent the day repainting hatch covers and held a anchor security watch while 20 miles offshore from Shanghai. Was spectacular but certain one I won't forget.
