Justin Mayer

Justin, The Sailor

gallery/aloft

Aloft or alow, Justin is at home aboard a ship. Following in the tradition of stagehands and sailors trading jobs, Justin took his experience in theatrical rigging and applied it to tall ships. After some time literally learning the ropes, he was hired aboard his first ship in 2017 as a professional sailor. He has sailed both oceans and one Great Lake, and couldn't pick a favorite if he tried. He has held an officer's position as Bosun for part of a season aboard a three masted schooner after earning a promotion to the rank. He is handy with a marlinspike, quick up the rigging, and always ready with a shanty. Please don't ask him to swash any buckles.
