I was cruising the main topics and saw you were the last to post to this thread and thought to myself "This ought to be good", and dropped in again only to find out you are just ribbing Rebel about his tie. Geez, I've already done that.

I was on that rig in the North Sea. The names are that of employees of Noble drilling that the company wants to honor by naming a rig after them. I can assure you they will never name one for me.

Re: the advantages of being a 100 ton captain

I had long assumed that as 100 ton Captain was an American term that it related to the size / weight of the Skipper.

Apparently not.........


Perhaps this thread should have been titled "What's the Best......." to keep some of our more sensitive / humourless / newer members happy .

If folk only want to hear the sound of own voices then stop interacting with other folks - here be the internet, get over it .

When Eric has his uniform on, I can barely keep my hands off of him. It's true what they say!

So you're a harbour pilot in San Diego? Where there's a world-class YC, zillions of good-looking Californians and a large naval base? And a beautiful family?

"Excuse me, Admiral, and Mr. Connor, I have to swerve to avoid this powerboat driven by the Brazilian Women's Beach Volleyball Team. They know how to spike, but not how to steer...now, Mr. Connor, what was that secret America's Cup mainsail trimming technique you were mentioning?"

It's going to be a long time before being on the water there becomes routine and ho-hum, my friend. That's a sweet gig, at home and on the water.

Every day must be like this classic bit of acting:

Now, THAT is funny.

Because it's true. You should see working boats on Lake Ontario. No salt means "aw, just let that ride another season. We'll fix it next winter!"

Re: the advantages of being a 100 ton captain

Here is a shot I snagged (thanks Red Charlotte) of Eric really putting to use that 100 ton license.

Sorry Atoll, he isn't sporting the tie and stockings you requested.
