I remember taking this pic and saying out loud, “that’s just bad ass.” I mean how many pics of the Golden Gate bridge have you seen?? Tons. And how many have you seen with a freakin container ship under it?? Exactly. Bad ass. I even added a 5 sec video for good measure. Use sound.
Now all that’s left is the memory. 🖤
The tour in sum: Growth, learning, warm emotions and the satisfaction of seeing hard work pay off for all involved.
All my love to the #hearthandhometour crew and the audiences who joined our winter adventure. 📸: @currentsessionsto
Reddingstation Wijdenes redt en helpt mens, dier en materiaal in nood op het Markermeer. Jij kan ons daar nu mee helpen door te stemmen op Reddingstation Wijdenes bij de actie van ING Help Nederland vooruit. Link staat in de bio!
Met de donatie willen wij nieuwe overlevingspakken kopen voor de vrijwillige redders. Het overlevingspak is een persoonlijk beschermingsmiddel dat op maat wordt gemaakt. Het overlevingspak beschermt de vrijwilliger tegen de weersomstandigheden, het (koude) water en zorgt ervoor dat de redder blijft drijven wanneer hij/zij te water gaat of raakt.
Last Thursday had a great opportunity to ride aboard a 11,000 TEU box ship in Long Beach. The pilot was fellow alum from #CMA Capt Art Grant. This was a 2 Pilot job and Capt Bob Blair was also onboard with us. While Art deftly handled the ship into her berth, Bob provided much info and commentary on their use of PPUs. This job was a great example of the necessity of the use of a PPU as part of the transit includes maneuvering in a basin with little visual indication of shallow water, but easily seen on an ECDIS or PPU. Great learning opportunity for me. Enjoyed observing some fellow pilots, consummate professionals, both of them. While this was a huge ship to me, it is still not as big as some of the even larger 18,000-20,000 TEU ships that transit here. Very impressive even to me. #pilotlife#pilot#tugs#tuglife#maritime#marinepilot#maritimeindustry#shipping#ships#transportation#oceancargo#LongBeachHarbor#megaship#COSCO#seafarers#seamen#sailors#IOMMP#mmp
