Here is a Pic of the ship I am pleased to say I worked on in the nth sea for the best part of 3 years.
The cost of this thing parked out to sea on DP with 12 divers in Sat is well over AU$200 k per day, plus fuel (about 21 cubes a day (the clean "go go juice" of course)) and food.
Can you believe I was on a job where we would wait for the safety office on an installation to get the 15 job applications for that day and then give a priority ranking and then only allow 10 of these jobs to go ahead. Now these numbers are a guess as I don't remember the exact details, but I am sure you get the picture. Anyway, we were often number 11 on the list, sorry lads (112 of us on full pay) no work today...... :cup:
One day, we found out that the office partitioning works got priority over us.
Now how much is the average Mum & Dad at home in the UK paying for gas just now.......

I learnt yesterday that men around my age shouldn't ride those razor type scooters down a hill carrying a back pack on one shoulder and their phone and sunglasses in one hand then try to traverse from concrete to grass. There is potential to crash and damage said phone and sunglasses and possibly take some bark off their hand.

ME: "What do you want to be when you grow up mate?"

I need somebody to 'learn' me :)

Besides 'webbing saddles' what is the real name for this? I need to get one but can only find them at Bias Boating in NSW where the postage is more than the saddle.

I learned that Jet Ski's weren't as useless as I thought they were. The girls had s great day being towed on biscuits and ski's, and I enjoyed fanging the crap out of it. Surprising as I had decided long ago they were a useless water born crutch rocket.

Just take care how much strain you place against that Zenith brand Satples. I found its work limits 1 day, it was a lot less then I assumed them to be.

And whatever you do DON'T use the supplied screws in any zenith package.  They are made out of cheese

Jas.

When you are using it skiing & have your spotter sitting backwards looking at the ski or tube make sure they wear the safety lanyard to shut the ski down. A good friend of ours didn't & fell of as the ski hit a funny wave & fell across the rope!!!

The rope is as tight as with the weight of the ski on the end & our friend had the rope run across their leg & it just about cut it clean off. They spent weeks in a coma & bairly survived. They can just walk on it now after several years & are looking at years of treatment.

The driver had insurance for skiing but it hasn't paid a cent as yet the friend has to sue the driver for negligence to get any thing out of it.
