And gCaptain has been an essential tool for keeping up with what is going on in this industry. It was a great tool when I first headed down to the oil patch - and yes, I used the Search Function before first posting - and it has been a great resource as I upgraded my license.
And pass my regards on the Maersk Deliverer.
