Twenty-four sailors from every walk of life, of every age and temperament, living literally cheek-by-jowl for week after week, away from family and friends sometimes for months at a time. All crammed in an elderly 40 metre metal hulled boat - in seas of all conditions with temperatures often in the 30's.
Seaman Bosun’s Mate John Jaffah, aged 19, has been at sea only four weeks, but already he’s sure he made the right decision in joining up. He likes the lifestyle, the mateship, and getting to play with all the hi-tech toys.
He is full of bravado, but this is easily punctured when things get hairy. He has a lot to learn and a lot of growing up to do.
