Hello ATSers. This is my first thread. Let me give you some background on what I will be posting about and myself. I hope pictures post. If they
don't could a person in the know U2U me?
I am a Marine Diesel Mechanic. Marine as in water not the military. The company I work for goes all over the United States and the world to service
and fix crew/supply/oceanic freighters. If its diesel, we'll come fix it. What I am about to post about I see on every boat, everytime I go. No
matter what country or state. It is sickening. I will be posting pictures of boat I am currently on.
I am in Forcheon currently. It is a porty "city" that boats come to for refueling, service, and loadingof equipment for oil platforms. This is a
huge hunting and fishing community. We are slowly, but surely destroying this area. I'm no eco freak, but even this disturbs me.
Here is Coast Guard rules and regulations of what you can dump and how far out you have to be to dump it,
This is about to go overboard.
We are on dock. So nothing can get thrown over board. At all. Even dirty water. The crew on this boat is currently doing shipyard work. Cleaning and
inventory and the such. Paint and acid lockers are part of that work.
These items spill and buildup all the time. Whole containers get thrown overboard when empty.
The rooms are scrubbed down with corrosive soap and vaccumed into a shop vac.
Fuel and oil samples are taken and then dump overboard.
Everything is then washed overboard.
This boat takes 12 people to run. I had to be secretive with takeing photos as that is a big no-no in the boat world. If you get hurt and sue you'll
never get hired again anywhere. If you see something wrong and tell you'll never get hired anywhere. I took as many photos as I could, but there was
alot more going on then I could capture.
I hope these people fishing know whats in the fish they catch.
Hope you enjoyed reading. Be nice its my first thread
I'll trying to answer any questions you have or answer anything if my bad grammar bad it unable to understand.
