I think they are in Palma Spain at the moment. Or was it Sardinia.

I had an electrician on board to help me change out a buck/boost transformer and his girl friend works on one of them. She had just flown in for a visit from one of those two places. Can't remember off the top of my head which one it was.

We spent the day in the office, not even taking advantage of it....And our office didn't have your view.

Yes, the weather has been so good so long for us I hate to even comment on it. It was a lovely run from Annapolis to Solomans today.

Picture not as calm as last time Bill painted it. Off Cape Charles, 20-25 knot winds 7-9' at 8 seconds.

From Annapolis to St. Michaels, 15 knot winds with 20 knot gusts, but waves only 2'.

Another boat beat us to the load dock, so we decided to treat ourselves to a spot of anchoring while we wait. It's easy to be jaded when you work in a place like this, but every so often I still notice how pretty the Lakes can be.

That's really nice.

How long have you been a barge/tug captain? (What's the correct term?)

Seems like a cool job.

Have you moved your office back south where it's safely out of Joaquin's path? Home in Fort Lauderdale would be out of it's path. We just left NC for SC tucked away in the ICW so should be south of any major hit, just lots of rain. In fact, we have a side trip to Charlotte, NC and flooding expected that far inland. We actually are doing something we've never before done in taking the ICW from Southport to Myrtle Beach. We always go outside.

That was May 2013. Here's one from Dec 2008 when we had snow.

Naa, Im just the first mate. I just got my master's ticket earlier this year, but I haven't sailed on it yet. I've been sailing commercially for almost 10 years. It's a good gig, overall. The pay is good, but the hours are lousy (6 on, 6 off for thirty days straight.) I'm away from home a lot, but when I am home, I usually get weeks of free time, which is great. As often as not, my view looks like this:

(no that's not a black and white picture...)

My Office View

That view is not as pretty! 😄

I met a cool tow captain on the Mississippi when we were waiting to lock off the river. The river current was at flood stage and I was having trouble holding position. He saw me floating around in circles like an idiot and let me tie off to his tug and wait on the lock for an hour or so.

Is that 6 hour shifts you're talking about? So you are on the boat for 30 days? What do you do when not on shift?
