Calling Nipa but didn’t reach with VHF. Sea current drifted away her from us and maybe she also has a job operation STS with other without us.

Going down and take lunch.. come up bridge again I remember of my IF card Internet. Make some communication hope its sent to me as soon as possible due to my internet data getting expired on next few days.

Second time call again NIPA and reached. get communication and all operation planning has confirmed.

Get rest again waiting agent confirmation to bunker FW and maybe also crews change.

LUZON Strait of TW it’s a place of some seaman life job activity at sea.

Working at moved target, relatively ship movement its a fund job..! even without DP or modern mode of bridge navigation aids, I enjoyed it. From the bottom we learned again how the basic idea of the relative movement at sea. How the current, how the wind can help…!! Like a birth flying reach the height with help of the little wind.

By seaMan, TW hight sea

Today, 06/Mar/2017,
Magnama 2 Block 16,

Has been more than 1 month passed, the activities still going on as the usual the mariner’s life at sea.

Also has more long time, the blogs no updating from any news and some of copy paste article or something good to share.

So, if I wanna telling something, the secret may be…, the Indonesian mariner life some time better.. sometimes working, have a job… sometimes less job… get a job and going to sea! 3 months later finished the contract and get back shore no job… no job again.

it’s reality,, realities of some group of seaman life..!

Now.. also here… maybe I get better and back again to blog.. creating and writing something to enjoying the fun of the seaman life story… until the time will getting back to sign off, vacation and staying home, back to the problem again, less job.

So, as the subject I’m gonna write some fun things about Bangladesh offshore.. maybe get help for anyone of the seaman on the planet.. which has been an over the world relationship of life at sea.

Will be continued..
