May Be not all the Time but Sometimes Seafarers tend to leave the Sea Life and Come Ashore. Research conducted by Barnett, Gatfield, Overgaad, Peckan and Graveson tells you the following Reasons for Seafarers to leave the Sea Life and come Ashore:

1) Firstly according to the researchers, many seafarers consider their lives in the sea to be a temporary passing phase before they choose other career paths.
2) Family pressure is another big thing as sometimes the constant expectations to choose a land job forces many seafarers to leave their sea jobs.
3) Coincidental Opportunities is being pointed out as another critical reason where seafarers who feel confused with their career options leave if anything nice clicks ashore.
4) Not being able to adapt to the stressful social condition while sailing is another critical factor pointed out by the researchers.
5) Bad experience and bullying from the Senior Officers, at beginning of their career, might tempt a seafarer to leave the career option.
6) Cultural conflicts between seafarers belonging to different nationalities causes problems which sometimes forces some of the men back to the shore.
7) The lack of company identity is another main reason which makes a seafarer identity-less at the end of the contract. Sometimes a seafarer seeks a complete corporate identity like people who are working ashore.

At least in India, a person working in office at very low level considers himself superior to a Master/Chief Engineer. So status in the society!

That is very unfortunate as the quality of people in the crewing agencies are not up to the desired level
