“After watch you get your next meal. The off going watch cleans the boat, does maintenance, paperwork, works on qualifications. There’s always another qualification to work on. If you’re lucky you have enough time to burn a flick or read a book, and if you’re too busy, your next watch will come up and you realize you never slept.
That’s the daily drudgery, the daily grind.
It’s Groundhog Day.”
