Used but good...

.....oooooh I hate "used but good". Although it goes against my "grain" i have to sometimes break stuff definitively, or give it the float test, so it doesn't wind back up on the shelf as ballast that will just get in the way of finding the real part you need.

Hi Stanislav, I saw you message a few days ago but did not get a chance to answer you right away, then forgot, but I see that Sprocket said pretty much all I wanted to say. TP 2293 is pretty much the single source of info that anyone will be able to quote you from. Its recently updated, July 2007, a...

Personal issues aside

The local TV stations are all up at arms, why did "three officers" (sic) (really one 4th officer and one quartermaster) on the bridge not make a course change. We want heads! Give us blood ! I had a chance to read the report almost fully, hard to do with a crying baby, but it was for the m...

Not really overheating, but if you suspected something, you just monitored that liner after startup, a...

Indeed it is the way

Although just a few years trailing your experiences, my observations are very similar. Which has led me to post many topics in the same train of thought as you are mentioning. Another words I completely agree with you and don't know of any vessels restricted by manning. I think the companies have le...

Image is a priority

I just downloaded it, but I haven't started watching it yet. It looks pretty drama "ish". I forget which they are using, but I believe its the Cape St James and is filmed in Squamish BC. The show season is over but you can catch it on your Global TV stations, on Tuesday nights at 10pm, or ...

Home of the free...

This came across the "wire" yesterday. Makes my skin crawl a bit. I always thought that we should be considered innocent until proven guilty as a principle, but at least we should all be able to have legal counsel in times of inquiry. Seems the US government takes another step towards a da...

Cruise control sucks !

You know I would have never though that Speed 2 would ever come up as a topic of discussion on this website, as a matter of fact I feel bad for admitting that I watch it in the first place. I think the only worst movie was snake eyes - now that was really bad. Yes it was aboard a ship, a good cast w...
