The italics you included helped for my skimming purposes, thank you. So, for example, my friend who is working on a d...

Re: Filling out the ER Log

I must admit, at this point I don't have the desire to sail as chief when I have my 3rds (at this point, who knows in a years time heh); however when I get some spare time and find a spare $1600 I will try to knock out the PPS 2 - that never expires, correct?

Share a couple of pictures when I was a cadet

V-16 cummins used as the prime mover for a compass thruster. Taken during the unveiling process of the...hiccup...we had early in the morning. It was certainly a learning experience as a cadet.

Re: Australian Spirit

Yes, it was towed in by the Venture Sea.
Curious to find out the source of the steering problem.

Re: Filling out the ER Log

Thanks for that little note, store that in the mental file cabinet. After all, only ~450 more sea days until it's time to write my 2nds, so the count down to PPS 2 and that is on heh

Re: Seadrill

I have a buddy who worked as a ERO for them for about 1.5 years on one rig off NL.
And a fellow graduate was hired as a Oiler on a different rig.

So some people are getting hired it seems.
