Well done Captain
I was ignoring Transformer's little jab at Capt Alex, but since you brought it up, I doubt Transformer has my tonnage rating, yet I have no problem accepting Capt Alex as a captain.
The main crux of this thread is Capt Alex has a new to him boat and on the shake down cruise
, no issues. I've been on a few sea trials of new ships and that doesn't happen, a list is generated on all the short comings.
Again, congrats on the new boat and your 1st passage
