No offense Rick, but I would have to say that's pretty bad advice. Is it the yards responsibility when you are offshore and the rig fails? They won't be there to save your ass, you're all alone at that point. I make a point of it to know as much as possible about how everything on Jessica Anne works for just that reason. One day it could be just me; no yard to blame, no cell phone to call some rigger and bitch at them, no help but what I can do for myself. I try my hardest not to leave my destiny in the hands of some yardboy that doesn't really know what he's doing.

Dictated, but not read.
