Up on the bridge of the trawler with the first mate

(Post 2 of 3)

Petur Andersen is first mate of the Sigurður, and this is where he sits.

The bridge of this trawler looks like the Starship Enterprise. “I went to sea at 17, and now I’m 43. I have never done anything else.” The crew spends about a week at a time out in the Greenland Sea: follow the fish, fill the hold, find your way home.
