Re: A letter to TC, and their response

The problem as I see it is that the funding then goes to the provinces for the community colleges. They have to ramp up, get instructors and get a curriculum up and running with classes. TC audits the training to ensure it meets their requirements. The hold up is probably at the provincial level. I ...

Re: YANMAR LIFEBOAT DIESELING/RUN ON

I've only seen this happen when the fuel system was contaminated with coolant and made it to the engine, the water blew the side out of the nozzle. Check your fuel supply with water finding paste and see what shows up.

Re: Stagnant wages

My wages were stagnant for years. Now that I am actually at retirement stage, I got a good raise. The bean counters do not respect the level of knowledge and work goes into getting or certs and keeping ships going.

Re: Captain Andrew J Rae online course

Captain Rae was a longtime fixture in the Halifax area and held the rights to distribute the Reid's books. He did all of the compass swings for the ships in the area. He died a few years back but I think his son has the business. I'm sure the course is fine. I've put a question out to friends and wi...

Re: Atlas copco mas ga 37 compressor

If I remember correctly, I bought a set of these type compressors for a ship and end up replacing them within a couple of years because of the hassles with them.

Canadian Coast Guard to build two heavies

This is great news for both Canada and the CCG. They have been the poor child of the government for 40 years with the last major builds being in the late 60's, 70's and mid 80's. It is welcomed news to see this:

Allan McDonald - Challenger Disaster

It takes great strength and personal integrity to stand up to management. But at the end of the day, you have to live with the outcome of the decision you take, whether it is good or bad outcome. “Under intense political pressure, it’s easy to cave, to say you’ll play ball,” Dr. Maier said. “He didn...

Not sure where "cry me a river"fits into the discussion. My points were not a lament, but a discussion of facts and figures. Personal sarcastic comments only discredit the speaker or author of such. Please kindly concentrate on merit and facts. I would like to see logical comments, whethe...
