Bow View Alongside PierF/V Heather Lynn at the pier in Galilee
Walking down a pier, a certain respect for a vessel comes over me. I like to observe the lines of the vessel. I assess the condition of the vessel out of reflex. Thoughts of the maintenance, types of power, the thickness of the plate all come to mind. A marine surveyor brought me up (and I became one myself) after all. The automatic analysis never left me.
That marine surveyor-like analysis taught me one thing years later. That is, that there are certain owners who love their vessels. The respect for these vessels shows every time. I try to treat the observance of the vessels with the same respect.
