 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
I am in a home based business (legal services) and doing quite well. I live at the foot of the Rocky MTNs in Canada.  It's beautiful, lots of space, clean air, clean water and lots and lots of game and fish; but I would chuck it  all to go back to sea.

Other Comments:
Since retirement (1995) I have been a crew leader in construction; a shift supervisor for a housekeeping crew at a large hospital; drove a taxi; trained security guards for several security agencies, and the worst job of all, was a corrections officer.
