its bad all over.
going to get worse.
hellsrazor: do you know anything about the laws affecting the transport of domestic oil from US port to US port ?
I read that there was a law enacted that a special type of ship is now required to do that and the US has very few of them. So we , US, need to rely on foreign ships to do the transfer ( it would be to move crude from one area of the country to another where there are refineries) and that there are so few available that the most cost-effective thing to do is just export/sell the crude to another country.
I dont understand why we (US) cant just build the ships necessary to do this? maybe with the anti-oil administration the ship building companies dont think sinking the money into shipbuilding-speculation worth taking?
Not gonna perpetrate bro, I don't know squat about that.
I've been working on Destroyers (DDG's), Cruisers (CG's), LHD's,
LHA's & LPD's and Coast Guard's Deep water Program,
Pretty much since 1990 till my layoff.
I also have worked on the Navy's Experimental Catamaran and DDX.
Worked mainly (CIC) Combat Information Center, and Sonar.
So in hind sight, I've kinda screwed myself by specializing in Navy ships
and not the oil industry's and Maritime ships.
Because Navy ships electronics and electrical are completely different than Maritime ships.
Now I'm an older fuggar and people don't want to give me the chance to
work and learn the Maritime side of it.
I'm trying to find a way to get into Flux Core training,
Because the Department of Labor and Workers Compensation is willing to pay for my schooling from being a Veteran and being hurt on the job requiring surgery on both knee's that now sport a 10 percent (PPD)
Permanent Partial Disability.
