      I wonder why T.V., when a tiddler, didn't consider the sea as an alternative to the road??

        The life at sea and life on the road was very different at the time he made his choice.
        At sea you went away for years, on the road for days.

        He doesn't have to be that old to have gone to sea when the standard contract was 18 months on ships that never called at European ports.
        If the ship was in Far East trade two years were the norm. Many stayed on board for years on the same ship, or stayed in a foreign port between ships.

        Standard contract 18 months to two years - I wouldn't describe that as "At sea you went away for years". Short term stuff.

      the Vink family had some truckdrivers,no sailors.so i went on the truck in the holidays.
      but decades back when i was young,at school i wanted to sail on a Smit tug,seeing the world.
      but at the end i just became a stupid truckdriver.a roadblock in the eyes of car drivers.
      best regards Thijs

        Impressing amount of traffic. A true ship highway!

      This well-put together video from COSTA FAVOLOSA would perhaps fit well under the title Life onboard.... at least it makes me want to go cruising (NOW)....

        Want to join me on a fast boat to China??
        A trip throught HK waters to Chiwan on a Container ship: http://gcaptain.com/time-lapse-frida.../#.VisC1fkrKUk

        This trip you have been on many times, but on a launch, or HSC, not on a Container ship.

            This thread has been dead for a while. Time to get back onboard a Container ship again, this time on a trip from the Red Sea to HK, via port stops in Colombo and at the now defunct Tg. Pagar terminal in Singapore: http://gcaptain.com/watch-thundersto...eid=4674ba0fbe

              I saw that one on gCaptain too.... absolutely stunning piece of work. I can't imagine all that editing work to make it fit into such a great film... the computing power to be able to handle 80.000 photos must be pretty great!

                    The British Royal Navy may have done away with the daily tot of rum for the everybody but they still know how to survive long voyages on their ships:

                    Maybe they should have had a better drinking culture for their crews while visiting foreign ports though:
