In the early to mid-1800s, Nantucket Island in Massachusetts was considered the whaling capital of the world. Whaling expeditions took sailors off shore in clipper ships on hunts that could last for years. During this same time period, lightships acted as mobile navigation stations, upon which the sailors manning them would also have to live for long stretches of time. Both forms of maritime work were adventurous, dangerous, and filled with adrenaline bursts mixed with long stretches of boredom.
