Re: Do you'all rember your first boat ride?

I'll have to re-visit this one when I get home and scan the page out of my baby book my mother wrote in for me. It reads, "Blair spent his 9th, 10th, and 11th month of his life on our boat the Gilbert" hehehe so I can say I truly don't remember it. lol My crib was a cardboard box from the grocery st...

Re: Oil Gusher!

Maybe they were doing hull inspections. From time to time we do see divers on these MODUs and Drill Ships doing hull inspections. Other than that we use ROVs exclusively to do our work subsea as someone mentioned before the hydrostatic head at these depths would crush a man. I've seen 12" square tub...

Re: Step children :<}} [boat related]

I like the line of that boat there. She's a looker.

Re: Oil Gusher!

I work for Dril-Quip the subsea wellhead company. The BOP is locked on to our wellhead.

I'm not sure what company you're talking about. The only company close to "subsea" is Subsea7 and they weren't on the Horizon, Oceaneering was. Or are you saying he was a Subsea Engineer for Transocean?

Re: Oil Gusher!

Finally a thread I know exactly what I'm talking about. lol No they don't work at these depths. On all of these rigs there are only ROVs, not divers for working on this equipment. I can't say much out in the public as my company that I work for has equipment that is on this well. I actually used to ...

Re: trailer recommendations

yessir, I totally agree and that's why I love the idea of these old Mastercrafts as doners. Man this trailer I got is awesome! all 4 wheels have hydraulic brakes, it's built for an inboard, and it's just solid as a rock. Like you were saying, it's no telling what one of these well built trailers wou...

Re: trailer recommendations

Oh I couldn't agree more with you Oyster in the fact that you get something far more superior when you DIY. Alls I was suggesting is the fact that the doner way is cheap, the most bang for your buck so to speak. I can say that the trailer I got with that MC is well built and will one day make a grea...

Re: trailer recommendations

My Uncle Jeral in Alabama built it. He has been building these since he was a kid. His father passed it down to him. Built out of plywood (sides and bottom) and cypress chines. No frames in this either. It was always a real treat to watch him lay these out. This is the last one he built and she is 1...
