Re: summertime lull

Brad, do you recall when Dave Hall passed away. I worked with Dave in the Arctic, and he was a great shipmate. The funny thing was there were 2 Dave Hall's on the same vessel. The Dave you are speaking of was shorter than the other Dave, so we nic-named them, short haul, and long haul. We had some g...

Re: summertime lull

Brad, the only advice I can give is to not write in Victoria, examiner here is a bit of a prick, in my humble opinion. Nanaimo would be much better. The company I worked for had only 2 vessels where you needed a 1st, all others only needed a 2nd. I was Chief on the drill ship where only a 2nd was re...

Re: Italy cruise ship Costa Concordia aground near Giglio

If you ask me it is a land lubber writing a story having tried to understand what was explained but did not understand then wrote the story. Or it could be that no one knew what they were talking about and Vanity Fair needed fill. It all sounded like Bull***t to me.

Re: Blue Riband

Thanks for this education Jolly Jack, sure am glad you are on top of this. I was unaware of this, but am going to try and investigate further. I agree with you 100%, foreign nationals will be the safety net the industry is seeking, to the detriment to all of us.

It taxied over where there were about 6 other but very much smaller private jets were parked, and out of this huge plane stepped a middle aged women and her 9 year old son. Thats it, 2 people...

Re: Italy cruise ship Costa Concordia aground near Giglio

I was on board the Laurier during the Clipper Adventurer pull off the reef in the Coronation Gulf. They were using these air bags that were about 80 feet long and when deflated were flat and about 10 to 12 inches thick. Once inflated it went to a 5 foot diameter tube. These were made of a tire like ...

Re: 3rd Engineer, Urgent.

395 a day for possible 2 weeks? Works out to 3700US after taxes maybe. Doesn't sound like much to fly half way around the world for on a cable layer too boot. Sounds like bad planning on someones part. Best of luck!
