yeah, tons of action over here, big fire on friday, no one hurt, dumped halon in module containing diesel generator # 5, then cooled it down with fire hoses, bale full open. Yikes big mess but great teamwork. 65 scba bottles refilled. That is more that enough action for one week.I was in the space a couple of times. Matt
Good Morning! (I think? 12 hour watches 2000 - 0800 throw me) I am approved for Tankerman PIC this spring...your tax dollars at work. Things are very good here...I've picked up almost 600 sea days with MSC so far ... one more deployment and I'll hit 3/O. which I know sounds silly for an old goat like me, but I am enjoying it, and it is a step in the right direction...Talked with Swabby recently...too much ammo here for me to get him and his son on board at this time...security very tight, but I may see him when he gets back from Dubai. I'm going to go play with Sarah E. Twomey in Boston this weekend, then watch the super Bowl! Matt
I bought a all in one scanner/fax/copier/printer for my wife a year ago and the machine is great and it wasn't too expensive.
Dubai should be very interesting. I haven’t been there ether but Matt has been sailing around there a lot. I know that he would love to hear from you. Here’s his email:
I hope that you have a safe trip over. Also, you never told me where you are living now.
Comment back. Got it! I'll shoot Matt a note. I bet he's sailing on some of the ship's I am fueling. Off to Dubai on the 22nd. Never been there yet. Should be interesting. Going to try to get an easy and inexpensive scanning machine today so I can do some of these shots I've been digging up. Later Jamie,
I just listended to the last 25 mintutes. It's pretty cool and the first podcast that I have listened to. Is it indexed, i.e. can I find a directory of different interviews for example? I would be glad to do an interview sometime.
Tabor grad 1956. I keep in contact with the school. I will be posting some photos of the Tabor Boy that go back to 1955 and even one or two of the preceding yawl that were taken in 1952. My brother graduated in '52.
