Capt. Ben Garman walks podcast viewers through work boots needed on deck
NWMA Weekly Podcast Episode 16: Boots
Rough, non-skid deck surfaces on ships will wear down grippy boot treads in a matter of months. So, starting out with a well-made, rubberized sole is vital when choosing good work boots.
You want a good, supportive sole to reduce knee and back pain, explains Capt. Benjamin in his latest NWMA Weekly podcast. Also, a rubberized steel toe and waterproof functionality are a must in the maritime industry.
Watch below as Capt. Ben, Northwest Maritime Academy administrator, and Chance Busey of Gig Harbor Marina & Boatyard cover their next topic under “deck tools” — in this case, footwear needed for working on ships.
