)-- The spouses of these officers experience lot of things, which may be similar to each other’s lives. They now have a chance to understand the solutions to their day-to-day problems and concerns by other’s experiences. Simple things like ‘how to prepare yourself for joining a ship’ can be a difficult exercise if you are not guided properly. Only those spouses who have actually been to sea can showcase their experiences to others better. Integrating this way opens them up not only to the world of merchant navy but also to the people associated to it. Spouse also can showcase her talent or interest there.
While speaking with the CEO of SeaFolks.com, Mr Umesh Dhekane said, “This is our sincere attempt to get SeaFolks and Sea Lovers closer. The aim is to get them all together to interact with each other and improve their collective lives.”
At the same time these days there are a lot of girls who get attracted to this profession. Some like to join it as well. All these girls, who according to SeaFolks are also categorised as sea lovers, now have a chance to get the first hand information from these sea folks. Marine students, senior sailing officers, marine teaching faculties, etc are registered on this site. Because this is a platform of people with similar interests and concerns, they can share the right information to each other. The site offers them different tools like blogs, forums, special picture section, etc which makes it easy for them to share their life.
Networking on the Internet is picking up very fast with youngsters nowadays, but many seniors shy away from it. There are a lot of sites that allow you to network with other people. But when you talk of a site like SeaFolks.com, which is a complete vertical or niche portal on the merchant navy profession, then it becomes meaningful even for the very senior officers to take part in it. Merchant navy is truly global in nature. More than 90% of the world trade is carried by the international shipping industry. So it makes perfect sense for the mariners to have an online presence via SeaFolks.com.
Technology is changing very fast on ships. To be successful in the merchant navy it is now getting more and more important for officers to be updated with the latest in marine technology. If you have knowledge of better and newer technologies, then you stand to have a chance of working on advanced technology ships. So sharing knowledge via SeaFolks.com gives officers a chance to get the first hand information about latest machineries or equipments, officers have worked with across the world. Looks like SeaFolks.com is a great recipe specially prepared for all the people associated with the Merchant Navy.
