Product Overview

Is working on ships, sailing or tugging through the sea-like waters of the Great Lakes something you''ve imagined yourself doing? Whether it''s your dream job or an area of interest, it is no easy task and takes a full crew to power the 1000-footers, steamers, tugs, Seaway and river class vessels. Lapinski gets close and personal with ship-life, from the captain to the cook, from the inner workings of the engine department to the intricacies of navigation, from the work it takes to load and unload large masses of material, to keeping the ships in tip-top shape around the clock during the busy shipping season.
