    Re: Internet Access on deep sea vessels

    Bah! Email; Zebedee Inc's ships have it, but most of the time it didn't work due to the steampowered PC throwing a rod! Half the time the bloody satphone didn't work either, and when it did it cut you off at random intervals. Given the number of digits you are required to type to get logged into your account and dial the number, having to do it 6-7 times got a bit wearing...

    I see your point, though I don't agree that having other women around would make a man miss a partner more, there may be more temptation, but if you're in a loving relationship you ought to be able to keep your willy in your pants!

    As for treating a lady as one of the boys, abso-frikkin-loutely!! Any idiot who tries to tell me I can't do something because I'm a girl and it's not appropriate get short sharp shrift I can tell you! I expect to be treated as an equal, yes siree!

    Married couples should keep it behind closed doors, PDAs are not appreciated! (True love should be based on friendship and cameraderie, if it's gonna last)

    CD- I intend to have a boy or two in every port!!!!

    The old MN stereotypes would suggest that you either arrange a girl in every port or blur the boundaries of sexual orientation.

    not at all .the point i was trying to get across was that, a man being on a ship for a long time with women maybe harder as they would miss there partner more. but i do also believe that women on a ship working is a good idea as it provides mix soical time. i think you would treat a lady you work with as one of the boys (if you catch my drift) military friends of mine have pointed this out before that you usally dont notice it is a women. but if it was someones wife it would be a different scenario as there attitude to each other would be different. if you can understand my point (its not very well put across no offence meant by this either) . as there realitonship would be one of love rather than having a working friendships and comoardery

    Do you find it that difficult to keep your hands to yourself on land???? Us ladies tend to take a dim view of those who think they can grab without an invitation!!!

    Ah I see where you are comming from now, hmmmmmmm well I guess that sort of thing could happen, but at the end of the day thats for the people concerned to worry about, mostly though wives and husbands are just that and the exclusivity is also just that, I have heard horror stories of it going "wrong" but mostly no more so than in any other situation, and if anyone tries to force themselves upon anyone else then the same rules apply as here at home and arse kickings will be liberally applied too

    Not sure why having wifey with you would increase or decrease the amount of arguments It is nice to have the other half with you and that goes for the ladies too, they can bring husbands (we are quite modern dontchaknow) and it can show how we live, and maybe go some way to explain why we (seafarers) are a bit odd.......

    As for email..... as far as the empire are concerned, as much as you can type, no attachments, no html mail, and the "box" is opened as often as the captain feels like, usually 4-6 times a day unless the engineers have broke something and there are mails flying about for repairs etc.

    I was beginning to think that you had sailed with the RFA in the past, but now I know that you haven't.
