Fammily and life at home. It was great while I was young but the fun wore off as I got older. I sail with lots of women today and ocasionaly am the only guy on deck with an all female deck crew. Times Change. I have never sailed with a female Master but a couple of my Female Mates have now started working as Master. There are a few more on the way. In all cases it took a first to blase the trail. to what is now relativly common. My own line of work lends its self better to familly life as I now run a Ferry.
If you can give me some details of the Ships you sailed on it is highly likely I can jog your memory regarding the femaale Nav cadets names

Ah, BC ferries eh, I was on the Victoria/Vancouver route last weekend though my usual trip is Departure bay/Vancouver
