    tug boat captain work 3 weeks on 3 weeks off
    NW fl
    hello to everyone, my name is Joe 56 yrs old, i work out of New York, captain of an ocean going tug (29 yrs.)..... The good part is i live in northwest fl. on 60 ac. of hardwoods surrounded by state forest. I have lived on the property for the past twelve years in my 600 sq ft cabin, i moved my mom on the property last year after my dad died, her house is quit a bit larger. Mom makes sure my Southern black mouth cur dogs are fed and alert to watch my toys,LOL. The latest being a ford 555D backhoe which brings me to this site, have been reading a lot already... i knew the guy i bought it from it runs and works good, its going to need brakes repaired but i can dig stumps and work it till then. :)But like everything else, the hoe showed up after i was on the plane and I didn't get to play with it.
