View from the Bridge
We are aboard the Laurence M. Gould, headed for Palmer Station. The ship is controlled from the bridge (except for the part that Mother Nature plays!) We are invited to visit the bridge in normal conditions. I visited with the mate Jesse Gann. He explained the duties he has during each watch. For this trip, Jesse has the watch from 8-12 (morning) and 8-12 (evening) How many hours a day does Jesse work, and how many hours does he have off?
