I have been offered an MMI principal position that I planned to accept but am now having second thoughts after watching a particular sea year video. Other than several cruises and outings on friends' boats, I have no experience with sailing or the maritime industry. My father is active duty army so I am familiar with frequent moves, changes, and the military lifestyle (at least as a military dependent) but am unfamiliar with deep sea sailing. I have never been sea sick but am uncertain how well I would hold up in the conditions shown in the video. The ship in the video was in the midst of a storm and the video caption states it was listing at a 50 degree angle. Would this type of storm be common? Would it feel like being on an extreme roller coaster for days on end? Relative to other dangers in careers (e.g. airborne operations), what is the relative risk of deep sea sailing? I followed the El Faro story and was very saddened by the loss of life. Was this an unusual situation or one common to the industry? I wish to make sure I am making an informed decision, fully understand the conditions I will face, and do an honest self-assessment as to whether this is right for me.
