Exactly! and it's a pub in the Brighton Cruising area where JK may often be found!
My point was that as a Master Mariner, then if he's in command of say a Jackup Barge or Survey Vessell which is on long term contracts to windfarms, he will be involved with windfarm project very early on and can maybe create a charter oportunity, which would be extremely lucrative.
If, however he's tramping round the World on a Box boat, Car carrier, Tanker or a Reefer then he won't have an opportunity to get his boat on to the Project he is working on
Also if he is month on and month off he can only work the boat for three months of the season unless he goes down the precarious route of Bareboat
charter or has a very trusted buddy to work it for him.
I guess the question I should have asked is in what area of the Marine Industry do you ply your trade and does it offer any possibilty of a bit of insider trading !
