3. I love the ocean
I'm almost incapable of getting seasick but it's pretty intense, especially when you factor in the cold and the ice on the deck. Hope your nephew comes back in one piece.

4. I watched the entire series first time around
TIVO'd it and I would watch it in the morning when I came home from work.

Lot's of money at stake and lots of hard work and risk involved.
Shit...you work 90 hours straight.
It's amazing that they had guys out there MY AGE working on these boats. And I'm 50!

I'm waiting for the whole thing to be released on DVD.
