Maine Captain Maritime Blog - The Maritime Site

Captain Ben Dinsmore is the founder and editor of The Maritime Site
I am happy to see another Maine Captain on the internet, I've added Capt. Ben Dinsmore's site  The Maritime Site to "Working Mainers"

From "About":

The Maritime Site is a blog about the merchant marine, commercial shipping, the offshore oil and gas industry, nautical science, offshore wind turbines, tidal energy, and any other topic of interest related to the professional maritime industry..

Captain Ben Dinsmore is the founder and editor of The Maritime Site.

He currently sails as captain on a large oil exploration and research vessel (drillship) operating in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico with the same company he started with after graduating from college (12 years ago).

He is a 1999 graduate of Maine Maritime Academy, former lieutenant in the United Stated Navy Reserve (honorable discharge), a USCG licensed Master Mariner of Unlimited Tonnage, and a USCG licensed Offshore Installation Manager (Unrestricted).

On his days off he enjoys spending time with his family and friends, golfing, and writing maritime related articles for this site.

He lives in Maine with his wife and two three children.
 Looking forward to seeing more from a fellow captain and Mainer. We have to live up to our motto" "Dirigo"

Ben's new blog is very informative. We should have more blogs like it. The younger generation of seafarers could make use of the information.

Barista Uno-

I agree completely. It seems to me each of us is just contributing a few pieces of the puzzle. Some more mariners blogging would help create a a more comprehensive view
