Merry Christmas from a former sailor

TOW YEARS AGO I signed on a Swedish tanker a few days before Christmas. I stayed onboard for four weeks. Those weeks was about the best I ever had. We had a crazy fun captain, an even more crazy chief officer (the rank below captain) and there was lots and lots of fun.

The picture above was taking onboard in the engine workshop. It was 2008's Christmas card sent to my friends. The two 2nd engineers (engine officers) and I made beards out of air condition fan filters and found a couple of red rags which we turned into hats. The red cover all was the companys standard dress. You simply take what you got.

With this, I wish you a Merry Christmas!
