So You Think Your Job Is Stressful?

Everyone deals with some stress at work, but being the captain of a ship has to be near the top of the list. You might think that being out on the water all day would be relaxing way to make a living. Nothing could be further from the truth.

A ship's captain carries a lot of weight on his or her shoulders. They're responsible for the lives of their passengers and the value of their cargo. Also, consider the size and weight of some of the ships that navigate the seas. Even in good weather, it can be anything but smooth sailing.
