It's a very fuzzy photo, and I don't know who used my camera, but I include in the collection only to show just how much the guys appreciated me. You see at least two of the fellas in the background are saying I'm a number one shipmate (one of them may be Mike O'Connell). . . And this seemed to be something lots of Sebago Sailors did whenever a lens pointed in their direction.
Notice in my pocket... the infamous toothbrush!
For all of the crap we endured; rough seas, long hours, grimy work, and generally being abused by the circumstances of being at sea - we all tried to have fun and smile whenever possible. Telling a joke, teasing a shipmate, and generally being bugs in a potato patch were our only way of coping. It's not what our recruiters promised us, but in the long run we bonded and became part of a unique club - 255 sailors!
