About Me

I’m a retired merchant  marine chief engineer and master.

I enjoyed a career working on vessels serving the oil and gas industry. 

I’m a Lifelong sailor who was raised in the Islands. I served in the United States Nuclear Navy. I worked starting in 1990 as a Licensed Merchant Marine chief engineer primarily for the oil and gas industry. Also I received my first USCG Masters license in 1989. Several years ago retired due to M. S. This website concerns my past maritime related experiences and also past reloading experiences.

Quotes I like~ Two is one, Its the same difference, Utilize the facilities, Its my house Gus, Get em before they go extinct, I'm a figment of my own imagination, I'm a legend in my own mind.

I'm interested in my family genealogy and I have a website related to the topic.
