Can you share any of the details, or was it told in confidentiality?
i dont think all statements have been given and i dont want to post second hand info. lots of vomit and piss in those liferafts though hahhaa. were in em like three hours in some gnarly seas. surprised noone got hypothermia.
That was a miserable 40 year old POS ex supply boat. I bet some big seawater line was all rotted out and blew up flooding the engineroom and if the door at the forward bulkhead wasn't closed the entire hull then probably flooded.
too old even for Nigeria I guess

If I'm in any place long enough to call it my location, it's time to roll out.

I'd like to think the 'ol girl was worth a little more respect than what she is finding here. She started out life as an anchor handler. Once upon a time, she ranked amongst the biggest and best in the GOM. Since 1974, she has crossed the the Atlantic numerous times, worked Africa, been through the Suez canal, worked Alaska and the West Coast. In the last few years she worked South America, from Guyana on around to Peru. She's been to hell and back, and paid some pretty serious dues along the way. She may not be much to look at, but in her own way she shines.
