This is an admitted highjack, but I would love to start a thread that would get all over this.

I'm the first to enjoy a cocktail at the end of the day and am happy that yard employees do so too. However, drinking in plain sight of the customers at 5:01 (make that 12:01 on Saturdays) is ridiculous. Generally, who cares. But the next time they screw up some maintenance (AND THEY WILL), the only thought I have in my mind is them sitting around drunk with empty Coors Light cans all around them. Stupid, stupid, stupid. Bad management, which is grossly typical in the marine industry.

I think everybody just wants to believe they are in an industry that is laid back and everyone is there for fun. However, they are still in business.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
