Such a nice note.

I just got an email from my Captain in St. Thomas, Jeff. He and his wife Phebe were great to me in St. Thomas and Jeff was kind enough to give me a shining recommendation when my current Captain called him before she hired me here on So Taj. I am doing well here and I hope they are well and happy too!

Here is the little part of the email that brought a tear to my eye:

"I am happy for you and know you will be a great crew member for your cap and owners. I am wondering if I could be effective, or productive doing that as you are. Be safe and happy as I know you are on the water. I admire you alot. Jeff "

That really made me happy and I wanted to share.

I am really excited about my new job, looking forward to payday on tuesday... paying off loans...getting my shit together in other words.

In the pic, the totally taken apart dining salon... whew.

Hope you all had a nice tuesday!


  1. Notes of thanks, inspiration and encouragement can save the planet.
    Nice one!

    By the way, the photo reminds me of my rear lazarette. Are you sure that's the salon? Bit small.

  2. We are always so proud of you and Jeffrey's work ethic... you deserve the complement. You are a good hand.

    Hey that looks just like when Dad remodeled the dining hall in our house, are you sure you don't have the pictures mixed up? We don't have any windows either.

  3. Yep - still looking like my boat... (well the floor anyway - and the pile of crap in the corner - we have crap everywhere...)

  4. There are windows on both sides! they are covered in protective paper stuff.

  5. Yeah I later noticed that... I can't wait to see it all finished.
