The Misunderstood Mariner

The author of this blog is Capt. Rob Earle, and here's a little bit about him in his own words: "I'm a merchant marine officer with more than 15 years experience, mainly in Alaska, the Canadian and US west coast, and Mexico. I'm currently serving as Chief Mate aboard fast ferries in the Pacific Northwest, and before that sailed aboard a research vessel in the South Atlantic. I'm also Chief Writer at Ship Canal Communications, a business writing service specializing in the maritime industry."
