Hey There Great photo. I'd just like to add one thing. Actually the whole crew, even the ship's crew, are unpaid volunteers who raise their own support to cover their costs etc. I worked as a deckhand (AB) on both their subsequent vessels, spending 16.5 months on the Island Mercy and 10 months on the Pacific Link. Although I did have to pay to cover my costs, ie. food etc, it was well worth it and has been unparalleled as an awesome life experience for me. I have lived in many places most other Canadians have never heard of. Check out http://www.marinereach.com or email me jacobblondahl@hotmail.com for more info if you're interested.
