From the YouTube description:
"In this short documentary, I tried to answer some of the common questions that I usually get about shipping. The footage I took myself using fairly basic cameras that I could fit in my pocket while I was on the job as an AB (able bodied sailor) in the deck department. The story follows me on a six month journey around the world on a container ship which was on a run between New York and Singapore via the Suez Canal. This was my first time going to sea on a large container-ship so everything was relatively new to me, therefore please excuse the couple of shipping terms I misused (such as saying "deckhand" and "license" when I should have said "credential"). I have been on many ships since and will continue to ship out for the foreseeable future. Oh and I did not mention how much money I made because I did not want this to be the focus of the film. I hope that sailors around the world will watch and pay rates fluctuate wildly from company to company and nation to nation. The pay was fairly good and since I had all my stuff in storage at home, it was certainly worth it! Thanks for watching."
