SEA senior steward Ger Tysk profiled in The Maritime Executive
SEA in the News
Air Force Veteran Inspired by Moby-Dick
The Maritime Executive
“As for me, I am tormented with an everlasting itch for things remote. I love to sail forbidden seas…” ? Herman Melville, Moby-Dick; or, The Whale
In 2014, Ger Tysk of Houston, Texas, was recently out of the U.S. Air Force and ready to take on a new career. An avid reader, she picked up a copy of Moby-Dick; or, The Whale by the American writer Herman Melville. This story of a notoriously elusive white whale that sinks the whaling ship, Pequod, pivoted Tysk’s imagination towards a career at sea. Tysk was glued to the pages, yearning to see whales and wildlife while sailing the open ocean.
