This the Boat I work on
I am heading off to sleep see ya'll round midnight CST when I come back on watch
The design hasn't changed much over the years. And here I thought you were the captain.
http://www.gunslot.com/pictures/top-ten-things-only-women-understand .......you look like the Captain to me......LOL
I was only on one ship while i was in the Navy, and that was a Spanish aircraft carrier in Rota Spain (one of our old essex class we gave them after WWII) so not much of a "grey water" sailor but for some odd reason years ago i got into whats called marlin spike seamanship..
This is the whole lost art of tying knots.. (can't ya all see Ebear getting a woodie bout now) talking about securing stuff besides women Ed.. Sheesh bunch o pervs..
So question.. do you use large hawsers.. Can you throw a bowline on a bite ha ha. Seriously do you use bowlines.. anchor bend.. carrick bend.. do you coil, fake, or flemish lines.. Are you guys using wire or fiber lines..How bout watches, port and starboard, or the four hour stuff where you have the afternoon "dog" watches.. Were sorta curious about a working sailors routine..
the "captain" thing.. naw he's just pure happy.. Thats the smile of a satisfied man.. thats the reason i was asking him about life aboard ship.. Brother Jeff just lools happy with that job..
Had a brother-in-law the other brothers called a "yard ape". He cut grass for a living. The smile might be attributed to the fact he has his other hand on the joy stick. Does she have a wheel or a "joy stick".
Yes we still throw lines, there just made of kevlar now. I hold a 100 master/200 ton mates License, but they are a dime a dozen out here so I am having to wait for a captain slot to open up. We use a ship's wheel up front and the Fast Cajun is over 10 years old. The controls in the back are stick and throttle. To the reason I have a smile is I have a job which allows me to pist off liberals and support the welfare system instead of living off of it. I work a 12 hour watch midnight to noon or noon to midnight. I handle the cargo at the rig were we use bolan knots, the others knots are used on the bigger boats were I have forgotten most of them, I can still splice a line in a pinch if I needed to though. I do enjoy working out here and have been doing this since my junior year of high school when my dad got me hired on his supply boat Mr Jessie, yeah I work in the family trade course he is former navy and I am just cajun navy. I have tried to work on land and I just didn't like it nothing wrong with it but it is just not for me. While working offshore for ECO I have been able to see Anarctica, New Zeland, Chile, Virgina, San Diego, and Hawaii. I have work on research, supply, anchor, and fast supply vessel's. That all I can think of right now if you have any more question feel free to ask
Jeff, pretty sleek looking boat. If you don't mind, what is it the boat is used for?
