With a successful anchor watch came a successful 5 hours of sleep, finally. Being on the Roseway has been a challenge both physically and mentally. The work is extensive and the people sometimes get annoying, and nerves are worked. However, this experience has ben one of my best …

07/05/18 - The energy on this boat is infectious!

Oyster Bay, NY


Today is my fifth day being back yet again on the Roseway. The energy on this boat is always infectious and sometimes challenging to go through but better than being home. Today was good seeing everyone with a better attitude and willing to participate. For diner we had a fine la…
