A couple days here in the life.

Here is a short time lapse video I put together last hitch. In case you were wondering what running the boat in Fourchon and offshore is like….well now you don’t have to wonder!

    interesting video. it looks like you guys spend a lot of time in reverse. are the boats set up in any special way for that?

    Very nice video. I have been making little videos with my GoPro but still learning to use batch processor to shrink the pics. I work for E.C.O. as well kinda moving around the Chevron Boats while I complete my DP time.

  5. Thanks for the comments everyone! We spend 75% of our time at the aft wheelhouse controls when port, and nearly all of our time there at the rig.

    Brian- Do they have many even time boats in the chevron division?

      Not many, I know several people that talk about doing it but they can’t get every one involved to go along with it.

    We are already short handed on capable and experienced officers, with new builds continuing to hit the water. It takes a minimum of 3 bridge officers for a successful 28/14 rotation. To do even time, it would take 4. We are to short handed at the present time. Do the math, even time will not work right now.
