Default Like the Old Stuff

Without going into intangibles, I worked 2 weeks as mate and 2 weeks as pilot on the MQ. I found the MQ to be a better boat than I had expected. Piloting it was much easier than horsing around the old DQ. That said, I really didn't mind the "primitive" conditions on the DQ because of its intangible allure. One can always adapt.
