Have you ever wondered what it's like to work aboard a tugboat? This book will answer some questions that you might have about the tug boater's life. My name is Captain 'Bill' Alligood. I have worked aboard tugboats for over twenty-nine years, which is why I have written My Lifetime on the Water to share the experiences that I have actually lived. From a deckhand to a Captain, I have seen it all. Some of my stories are funny, some serious, and some adventurous. I hope you will feel my experiences through my writings. After you read about My Lifetime on the Water, I am sure you will yearn for more of what we seamen call our 'sea stories.'
