Dark-Hulled Painted Merchant Ships with No Air Conditioning......

....ARE HOT!!

Not that I'm complaining.

I'm doing foreign vessel boardings for the Coast Guard reserve. Nothing dramatic, just some saftey inspections. I'm not even armed, just some manuals and tools and a ticketbook. I have seen people working on ships that remind me of how good I've got it at UPS....especially when one remembers that the bad ships don't often come to US waters, lest they be fined or laid up.

..and anyway, I deal with heat a lot better than cold.
