Thanks, just a case of me bragging "mine is bigger than yours", and in return I'm reminded it isn't quantity, but quality. And everyone on this thread is responsible for souls on board that make mine look a bit gritty by comparison.

And as a side note, since your other post was asking about a catamaran.
All of these girls where not interested in going out on our previous Catalina 380, But they all want to go out in the "Cat All The Time".
They really like the flat ride. Big Cockpit helps also.
Major advantage of a cat.

Re: the advantages of being a 100 ton captain

Well you dont need a license to have fun. And in that department I am certainly in the running for the gold medal.

As for experience, I am getting it at a rate of about a year per year.

Speak of the devil, the OP right above me. We have chatted on other threads and I can assure you he was having fun, he is a fun type of guy.

Besides, I'm married (happily) and I should not say such things.

Why is someone smoking on a drilling platform? Anyone caught doing that in any patch job I know would last about as long as it took to be thrown off the rig.

That is rather simple, I smoke, so when I'm on board, the bridge wings become an approved smoking area, as the change/break room always has been approved.

One of the girls is a good friend of mine's wife; it was her birthday party. He charted the boat, needed a captain, and we took all the ladies out for a little girl-fest on the water. Beautiful day, wine, cheese, sandwiches: really a great time. Had the Beach Boys booming through the stereo.

Yep, with Noble one week short of 5 years. GoM, North Sea, and off the coast of Brazil.
