At sea with Eoin

Life on board the trawler doesn’t suit many. The auxiliary motors for the freezers are loud and the boat vibrates all day and all night, the prawns eventually irritate even the toughest hands and the Pilbara heat is relentless.
Competing against the opportunities offered in mining Eoin has difficulty finding staff, yet whenever his young deckhands show potential he urges them not to come back the next season; to stop wasting their talent with him and get decent jobs. Despite his modest income his wages are notoriously generous.
