Great Lakes Warriors

The new deckhand always gets the worst jobs. At Heritage Marine in Duluth, Captain Mike Ojard gives newbie Brandon one of the more unpleasant assignments — clean up the over-full debris pan from the Incinolet, an electric marine toilet.

This clip is from the History Channel show Great Lakes Warriors, which premieres July 19 at 9 p.m.

The adventures of two of Heritage’s boats — The Nels J. and the Helen — are featured prominently in the show.

In my experience (a few months on the SS Buckeye) it was actually the other way around -- the senior deckhand took the worst jobs, at least as pertained to the longer pull to get the ship moored to the dock. Our toilets were all properly plumbed, however; who knows how that would've gone.

They sure do make a big deal outta cleaning the ashes of shit. Somehow, as a former nurse's aide, I am not sympathetic.

I agree. The whole wink-wink, nudge-nudge treatment is a little ridiculous. Any janitor has seen worse than that.
