Default attn VOO owners/operators

licensed captain/yellow card looking to relieve others?

I have been running boats in the cleanup for the last 3 weeks for parsons, the boat I was operating for a friend had catostrophic mechanical problems and got de-activated, so im looking for possible another boat to run for someone who cannot/doesnt want too... it has been quite hot...

i'd be interested in relieving someone as well, i've seen some of these guys out there that have been working 8+ hour days for the last few weeks, everyone needs a day off....

I know the drill on check-in, keeping the logs, been a task force leader, and decon processes

thanks guys

The decon process is in place to assure that the VOO boats or any other boats for that matter do not drag a bunch of contaminated oil product to the inner areas such as Sabine, Texar, Chico, Big Lagoon etc.
The Steven Dann tug and the Santa Rosa crewboat are part of the Escambia crew, another "Dann" tug is manning the perdido Pass.
They check your boat visually. If you are fairly clean, they wave you on. If you are nasty, they wash the boat off with pressure washers. It's tough not to yell at the guys, they are doing the best they can. They have bumped us a couple of times, but BP will help us with any permanant damage. No damage so far to our boat.
Patience Patience and more Patience.

Go to the Suburban Lodge on Barrancas and give the front desk your data. TMS just moved into town with more boats than captains. The coordinator was calling around yesterday looking for captains. I think they're skimmer boats.

to be clear, I dont need to borrow a boat, i dont know how to get your boat activated,
my intent was to let people already activated know i am available to fill in/run their boat, i am working everyday now, sometimes captain of the boat, other times I'll deckhand, I was running a boat full time, this is what im really looking for, but again that boat is out now, I have yellow card, captains license, several weeks experiance out there, so i know the drill/protocol, I personally own a 26ft center with twins, last boat i ran was a 31 sportfish, Im very comfortable on anything around that size

thanks
