Sharing untold story of Invisible Heroes. #humansatsea
What is Peace? For some it is to be in Solitude. For some, Peace is Living with their Loved Ones.The idea of Peace is always different from People to People yet even after trying so hard to attain a Peaceful Mind, we are always not Content with our Life. I first thought that I will attain some state of Peace after Travelling. But even after Travelling to 4 Continents consisting of more than 35 Countries and don’t know how many Cities in them, Sailing 4 Oceans and 7 Seas, I found it to be Completely Wrong. A Sailor can never be Content. If he is content then his capacity to achieve more ceases. I don’t want Peace, I don’t want to be Content. Life is too small to Explore this Big Earth of Ours. So Keep Sailing, Keep Travelling. Let me know what do you think of Peace? . . . . . 📷 @mr.wao

LaRae Davies @laraedaay grew up in Cole Harbour, a suburban community near Halifax, Nova Scotia. As a child, she enjoyed hearing stories of the heroic mariners in her family. From divers to merchant mariners, LaRae's family has a rich history of working on the water. LaRae proudly boasts, "I was born with salt in my veins and sand in my hair!" . At the age of 16, LaRae found work in the Bedford Basin, a large enclosed bay at northwestern end of Halifax Harbour. Summers were spent needle gunning, grinding, and painting barges. Before long, she was a deckhand on a tugboat that maneuvered with large ships in and out of the bay. . Intrigued by technology, LaRae was driven to work with remote operated-vehicles (ROV's). Currently an ROV pilot, LaRae is responsible for steering the submarine to complete various tasks on subsea structures. She also completes repairs and modifications to the ROV, both hydraulic and mechanical. When she is not offshore in the oilfields of eastern Canada, LaRae often works in Halifax Harbor, where she often operates her ROV alongside divers to complete inspections of the area. .

My name is Agnes, 25 years old, Swedish. I hold a Chief Mate Unlimited licence & work as a 1st Officer in the cruise industry. My story in the maritime industry begun when I was admitted to a maritime high school in 2006, a special high school including maritime stuides & 3 months as cadet. I graduated with an unlimited Able Seaman licence & begun working as an AB. The AB job was exciting & fun, and at one point, I had the pleasure to work with 3 other female ABs, but it wasn´t enough to stop my hunger for adventures & for the sea. I moved on to study at Kalmar Maritime Academy, & kept working as AB during holidays & weekends on the ferries in the Baltic Sea, & sailing as cadet for my licence on tankers, RoRos & Bulk Carriers. My last year I got admitted as deck cadet on a cruise ship, & that´s the first chapter of my story in the cruise industry. After graduation with an OOW licence, I knew that the Baltic was to small for me. I had a hunger to see the world. I got back to the cruise industry, applied and got a job as a 2nd Officer. As for today, I´ve worked on cruise ships for 3 years and last summer got promoted to 1st Officer. As a 1st Officer, I share the bridge with 2 more 1st Officers, in charge of the safety & navigiation of the vessel on behalf of the Captain. We also have our other duties, mine including managing the inspection and maintenance of all safety equipment onboard. I love my job, & I love the maritime industry. It´s challenging and exhausting, but an adventure and a lifestyle I wouldn´t swap it for anything. You wake up & have no idea what the day is going to bring you in terms of challenges, people, fun, joy, happiness, headaches... I've visited placed I thought I would never see, and met amazing friends from all over the world (plus I get to navigate a big vessel - every day). When I begun my career at sea, 10 years ago, there was no instagram, and the facebook era had just begun. As a 15 year old girl, falling in love with the maritime industry, it was hard, actually impossible, to find someone to look up to. I´m honored to be a part of women in martime & hope to become one of those role models that I did not find when I begun.

This model of an English ship was made in the second half of the 17th Century. It is what is known as a "block model". This type of models were made by shipbuilders at the yards, so their customers could study the form of the ship they ordered before the construction started. Block models are called this way because the hull is usualy built from a single block of tinder. This models never show the mast and the rigging, because those part of the ship were made after standarized forms that the ship buyer already knew. This objects were built quite fast but the constructors took care of making them ornamental, so the customer would be pleased. One could see block models as the ancestors of modern yard models. This beautiful example of a block model used to be part of the private collection of the famous British marine painter Montague Dawson (1890-1973) before it became part of the collection of Prof. Peter Tamm. . . . 📸 @maritimesmuseum
