Thanks Chief, Yep it's a closet, I have a pix in my phone but can't seem to get it to my email. I had to keep my stuff in the forward gear locker with the spare parts and water pump. I do know it gets so damm cold in that room you have to SHUT the vent, brrrrrrr.
He (the Chief) had a problem with the coolant for the port/stb gensets and had to have some welding in some bleeder valves on the coolant pipes in the aft bildge? Something about air getting into the system? Center hatch behind the winch. I had fire and safety watch on the welder while he did it after that I relized i don't like confined spaces joined with stinkin' welding. We did have a blower on the hatch but it still sucked. I do some warm body engeniering stuff as well. When I get back I'll get signed off on starting the engines,pre-lube,gensets etc..I do know that the port engine has to be started first, it uses more air to start than the stbd and you have to pull the relay before starting? It would be nice if they gave some seatime credit for the wiper stuff. I don't know if they do or not. Anyway lot's of opportunitys to learn about everything working on a tug. I'm really enjoying it and looking forward to getting back on and learning more. I figure the more I learn, the more I'm worth to the company. (Also +$$$ for me)
I know I'm on the MI Service for at least one more hitch, I've been told they move you around during "training" NYC is a very busy place.
