How to Work as A Deckboy with No Experience?

I am 18 and have just graduated high school in the U.S., I was going to go to college, but because of COVID-19, I’ve requested a gap year. Since I have a whole year to spare, I wondered if I can work on a freighter or a tanker or something of that nature.

I am not looking to pursue a career in maritime work right now, I am not going to a maritime academy, and I have essentially no prior experience with maritime work.

I was wondering if someone like me can get a job at sea, even the most menial job is fine!

    Alaska. Fishing or processing fish. They always need a body with a pulse and working limbs up that way.
