Born and raised in Nova Scotia I've lived a good portion of my life on the sea. When I was 9 years old a shipwreck took 7 men from my small community, all with families. Which would be only one of several seafaring disasters I can recall in my lifetime. Although I can understand Gainey's anger I do not think he understands what it means to go to sea. The long hours is necessary at times, safety conditions cannot be that of in a factory or any land job. Mother Nature does not chose it to be. Situations arise, storms pop up unpredicted, vessels can have many malifunctions. The ocean is very powerful and merciless. When she claims a victim she never gives it back. When Laura went to go to sea it was one of the risks she chose to take on. By Gainey visiting today and his change in demeanor I got the opinion he reached some small degree of acceptance.
