Accordion and piano is by shipmate Miro Snejdr and on lead vocals, acoustic and tremolo guitars the ship's Captain, singer-songwriter Koozie Johns.

There are songs about pain and addiction, love and loss, songs that will embrace you with nautical tales of the sea and far away shores, sailor dives and dancing girls. Songs to redeem your soul to, to start over to, Songs for fallen comrades and long lost loved ones, songs to drink and be merry to or drown your sorrows to, you choose in fact there's a song for everyone. A blend of upbeat shanty rhythms, punk folk, skiffle rock'n'roll, shades of rockabilly and Americana tremolo.
