  12. Life at sea has its own glamor. This is @rvsikuliaq's current 1st assistant engineer Marcel Beaudin. Here he's just getting done with his 8 hour watch on the #engineering deck of the research vessel and sports what a shipmate called the "junkyard unicorn" look. #junkyardunicorn #SKQlife #NanookNation
