Six Months In The Merchant Marine from Martin Machado on Vimeo. If you prefer YouTube please use this link to watch the video  (loads faster for slow connections) In this short documentary, I tried to answer some of the common questions that I usually get about shipping. The footage I took myself using fairly basic cameras that I could fit in my pocket while I was on the job as a deckhand. The story follows me on my six month journey around the world on a container ship which was on a run between New York and Singapore via the Suez Canal. Thanks for watching. -Martin
