Yes, the ocean deserves our respect, for sure.

I'm holding a 1600Ton Coastal license with Master of Towing endorsement right now. Next upgrade would be to unlimited and oceans endorsement I believe, but I have no need or intention of getting that at this time; I don't want to sail "deep sea" and be gone for months at a time.

Did two separate stints on yachts. First was working for "Flying J" truck stop owner, Jay Call on his 106' MARDIOSA. A couple seasons later I worked for the owner of "Terrible Herbst Oil", Jerry Herbst, on a 65' Hatteras, both just down in Cabo San Lucas, unfortunately. I did get asked to help with the delivery of MARDIOSA to Lake Washington, to the new owners house.

Ran lots of sportfishing boats out of LA/Long Beach and San Diego harbors; but then I wised up and got onto workboats, where success isn't dictated by the appetite of something with brain the size of a BB.
