    Default Bye Bye LANT AOE's

    I thought the Navy loved their fast moving AOE's? All those homesteaders addicted to that berthing pay crack must be pissed off.

    Good riddance, they have one of the worse pilot ladder rigs around. They have no concept of SOLAS requirements.

    Except for the unlicensed crew who were addicted to the berthing pay and various east coast shipyards, no one will miss these two ships. Arctic hasn't really done much in the last couple of years anyway.

    Not old, just hideously expensive when underway.

It was decided to pay a penalty rate to the mariners vice doing the upgrade to staterooms. Some guys liked getting the extra pay instead of a room alone or with a room mate.
