Ever wondered what it would be like to drive a tug boat, or overhaul a diesel engine? Have you had a hankering to work on a super yacht? This new Vlog shows you what a day in the life is like of somebody who works in the marine industry. Working around boats can be a huge advantage when you start working on your own boat. Or, maybe you’re obsessed with boats and want to work and play in them. Or maybe you just want to know why diesel mechanics charge so damn much:) Either way, this Vlog will show you what it’s like to work at a few jobs in the marine industry.
Robin was born and raised in the Canadian North. His first memory of travel on water was by dogsled across a frozen lake. After studying environmental science and engineering he moved to Vancouver aboard a 35’ sailboat with his partner, Fiona, with the idea to fix up the boat and sail around the world. He has written for several sailing publications including SAIL, Cruising World, and was previously a contributing editor at Good Old Boat.
