Sea Stories 

Sea Stories have always been told by those who served aboard ships to pass the time, as entertainment, to impress other sailors and to just share an experience. I was once told that old salts are not at sea but one becomes a salt by the stories he can tell after leaving the ship.

As with all good sea stories it is up to the reader to determine truth from fiction. In many cases the names have been omitted to protect the guilty .

If you have a story to share please email to Dean Myers
