I'v run into shallow water sailors off the coast of Vietnam, at a loran station south of Malta in the Med, and of course when taking cargo to Antarctica in '64. That was neat as I was usually the oldest shellback wherever I went. Everyone who went to sea, including my dad who sailed iron hulled sailing ships in 1912, and those who watch from close to shore, like at the old marine hospital in Clifton all have a sea story. The only problem with really writing is in most cases it takes practice and lots of it.
