Will y'all have some sort of Thanksgiving meal on the boat, or might that offend someone and thus be verboten.
Yep, we'll have a feed, starts at 1300 and runs till 1700. Then locks. Only end up with 8 hours of holiday pay though. :(

You'd think they'd make you guys salary employees, especially for being confined to the ship 24/7. What happens if a guy had an accident, slipped or something while on the boat but off the clock?

It's covered. Even dental. Shipping, Sailors has alot of different rules and laws. Several years ago, I suffered a hernia while on board. They paid me my day rate and paid all medical until I was able to return to work. No lawyer needed.

On the Military sealift command ship we had great cooks and bakers. Difficult not to put on weight. Which locks and how many did you have to transit? Chips ahoy.

Only 1. Soo Sault Marie. Between lake superior and lakes Huron./ Erie, Michigan. Sometimes you eat out of boredom. Hey, it's cold, I need more calories to stay warm!
