with Kevin Woodward
The Sea: All Aboard
Kevin is a second mate and a watch-keeping officer, also the ship’s Navigator. Other duties vary, but the second mate is often the medical officer, is in charge of maintaining distress signalling equipment and assists the Chief Mate with the Cargo operations.
In this episode, Kevin joins us to talk about his life at sea – how he joined the merchant navy, his work aboard vessels as well as the nitty gritty of the profession.
In Part 2 of The Sea, we continue our conversation with Kevin where we discuss safety protocols, traversing the Suez Canal – which has become quite infamous over the past couple of days – Kevin’s favourite current as well as his encounter with pirates.
