Chouest is selling the Fast Tempo along with the Wheeler to MSC in a couple weeks. It is based in Busan, Korea. Lots of dock time, but you do have to follow the Wheeler around when it goes to Guam 4 times a year. Non-inspected as it is supposed to be towed. Runs with a 100 ton license Captain and a crew of 3. 12 hour watches on a 1700 mile trip through year round typhoon infested water at 10 knots. Hang on tight. Not sure what companies are bidding on the manning contract, but Gary is not.
Anyone hear who is manning these boats?
