Re: On the Car deck

Yes indeed, that is a good show too. I was impressed with Serenity it felt a bit more fresh than the usual SciFi. The Firefly series was the precursor, but the movie basically condenses the story into two hours instead of the 12 episodes - if you haven't seen the series.

Re: Disaster

Solutions on a ship are pretty diverse. Especially when you have some source of fire, oxy acetelyne. I am interested in finding out what you did. But I imagine that it involved swapping around some prime movers or fabricating some pulley system.

Mmmmmm, Im all ears.

Re: CAT Problem

I have a very similar problem that is similarly getting under my skin, except our engine is a Detroit Diesel. So far we found the overboard line clogged with mud, because we operate in a silty environment, we figure the silt gets deposited from the overboard line. We don't use the engine that often,...

I always thought the US Public Health inspections on cruise ships were just BS, but they did have very good design specs that prevented this from happening. I look on my current boat and cringe ev...
