The most interesting yet disturbing message was left for me by one of the readers of my articles.
It was in reference to a few of the examples related to specific reactions of a sea going vessel in a narrow channel. The statement from them was some thing like ‘in all my years at sea, I never heard of anything like you described, getting pulled into the side of the channel, what a bunch of crap’.
I responded, as I always do to messages, good or bad. I said “Thank you for your feedback. Have a great day!”
There was no point in arguing with a voicemail message.
Thinking about this message later I was wondering if possibly others consider some of my sea going facts about ships to be fictional.
Now let me square this away right now. For starters here’s a recent WSJ Article you may want to look at. In great detail the article describes exactly what I referenced in my article.
In terms of my ship terms, references, facts and stories these aren’t made up.
They’re all based upon my experiences and Nautical Science Degree. My sea going references and stories are often repeated in my broad speaking engagements, lunch and learns, workshops, seminars, Mastermind Groups and much more.
They are always in reference to a point to be made for the audience to grasp a certain concept, habit or behavior or another point related to the topic we are going through at that time. By tying these to my story – everyone remembers the concept!
Rest assured there is no incentive for me to invent fictional ship facts.
Besides, I’m no politician.
So all are welcome to comment right here on the articles or reach out to me anytime.
If you are interested in what is being talked about here, feel free to let others know and read the WSJ article.
