I am writing this from the sea, before my ship docks at the port. I love the sea, but I will be leaving it for 4 months now. I am really worried that in the current times, if they will call me back and if I will have a long term job. The nature of a seafarers life is very unpredictable and its really really tough to go through life without stability. I hope there is improvement in the way our contracts work, so we can be assured of long term stability.
