Why are captains so out of touch?
Posted: Tuesday, April 10, 2012 4:29 PM
Why are captains so out of touch? At the end of this season we are going to lose a couple of good crew because a known trouble maker that is part of the captains social click is constantly bullying and manipulating work and social situations. It's the same each season and it's wrong. If a department head can't keep people shouldn't the captain figure out there is a problems? It seems drinking with the captain is more important that doing a good job.

Because they get paid to much for doing nothing! They think they are far superior.

First, put your name out when you write that the captains are out of touch. Why are you afraid of what you write? Some captain may be out of touch, like any other crew. The people out of touch in the yachting are , maybe, out of touch in life. Sadly, a lot of crew are here for a good time, not for the work. In the past 7 years in the yachting, I saw more crew leaving because of the nature of the work,then because of the captain. Are you afraid of the work?

I see a recurring theme on these Dockwalk forums: the poor crew are never wrong, over worked & under-appreciated... its always the captain's fault.
