Helix ESG is good.
finishing up the CMM upgrade, sent in paperwork to USCG NMC, good/fast communications. passed all screenings, gotta submit my last couple assessments and certs. testing in June right near home at Battery Park Building: hell yeah, good vibes from those Staten Island Ferry prolonged blasts every 20 minutes. rattle the windows and keep me focussed.
studying now, such a trip. Murphy books mostly. remembering how to do all those calculations. got a few old Lapware tests from some of you, otherwise reading Bowditch Vol 2 and thats FUN. talk about a sex life killer: reading that stuff in bed…
already did flashing light… didn’t it used to be 6 or 7 wpm back in the 90’s? mine was like 2 wpm… slow.
industry seems to be getting busier out here in Green Canyon 237. see a number of Seacor Anchor Boats, Chouest boats, & crew boats. in any event traffic is up in these past couple months.
if any of you guys work on the tanker Seabulk Challenge, yeah, thats us in your way every tuesday and saturday. its been a year and, yes, we are still a RAM vessel on DP and request a 1 nm CPA. jeeze.
