Great hearing from you. I've thought about you often while watching the news reports of the Texas drought. It sure is a terrible thing.
Hey when all else fails, head on down to N'orl'ns - what a fun town! I can think of a million worse things to become than a River Rat.
“Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.”
Kenneth Grahame had it figured out long before us.
Speaking of messing about in boats, I went to the first spring Annapolis Boat Show last friday and looked at a few boats. There's one that I have my heart set on but the price is a bit high for Mary's liking:
Hey Jon good to hear from you, 137,500m3 LNG Carrier, cargo at -260 F, Containment- Membrane GTT NO. 96, Steam propulsion, 19.5kts with an additional 19% sea margin, LOA 942', Draft 38', Beam 141", gas burning is standard 2x LD Compressors, no Reliq, you only see that on the Q-Flex and up starting at 217,000m3 capacity, they they are twin slow speed (MAN B&W 6S70MC-C's if i remember correctly)
Hey Dude! Just got in from trials this morning and I'm heading back home on an 1100 flight this morning. There's a good chance that I'll be around in September. Also, please send me your mailing address - I need to send you something. I take it that you are back home from sea?
We finally had a successful sea trial aboard the next fisheries ship. The acceptance sea trial is going to be in a few weeks and may be during your time up here. I should find out early next week. Also, I have something that I’ve been meaning to ship to you but will wait if our time overlaps. Bummer about the reunion.
I’ll get back to you shortly,
great to hear from you. I do think of those days aboard Tabor Boy and my time at Tabor. It was fun for the most part.
I have a home @ Sugarloaf. had one since 75. Used to run up there with Wiley on weekends when I was at Tabor. Now I spend a lot more time. Got 60 days in of skiing last season 7 so far this year.
You're a dirt ball! Sorry, I saw the picture of Cap and the phrase came to mind. From him, I think it was a term of endearment.
I’m presently in that town that I like to refer to my little slice of heaven, Pascagoula, MS at the yard doing some catch up work on our three ships in various stages of construction. Whent over to New Orleans last Thursday to see the Work Boat Show. I ran into Tim Leach and Paul Mercer at the MMA booth and had some good laughs with them.
Happy holidays and give me holler some time: 703-728-6949.
