My Errant Ways : A Forthright Autobiography of a Limerick Seafarer

By (author) Culhane, Thomas J.

Being errant by nature, desirous of travel and in search of adventure, the author thereby decided to embark on a seafaring career, though such a decision was destined to be erroneous on his part, with matters terminating in disillusionment, bitterness and frustration. With life before-the-mast in both navies, i.e. the RN and the British merchant navy, having a lot in common and with the author not being basically cut-out for a seafaring life, due to being quiet and easy-going by nature and thus lacking assertiveness, then he had to contend with all kinds of undesirabilities, including usage and exploitation, racism, dirty-trickery, victimisation, bullying and assault, both verbal and physical. Courageous, tenacious, adaptable and adventurous nonetheless and being a survivor by nature and not a quitter, the author determined therefore, to contend with such odds and adversity and thereby contrived to stay at sea for a period of fifteen years, before deciding eventually that enough was enough.
