Part time engineer, watch keeper, electronics wizard, fishing gear technician, food handling expert, nurse, agony aunt, health and safety guru, lawyer, accountant, communications genius vis a vis markets, spare parts, crew, family, etc, employment relations liaison, vessel maintenance, C.E.O., C.F.O., oh yeah a being good fisherman helps as well and then he has to go home to his family. Who said ‘I wish I was a fisherman! They we’re obviously a little mad which helps too.
