Here was 1. Part of my inspiration here is Paul’s hawsepiper blog, sorted here by the topic of bunkering. Here’s bowsprite’s POV on this. Another part of the choice here–other than muggy August weather–is the appearance of this story in Professional Mariner, for which I took the photos. This post uses some of the other photos I took that cold, dark morning a half year ago.
Behold a problem of having a dripping water hose too close to the fuel inlet.
The crew of Capt. Log topped off quite a few tanks that morning, and
printed out a ticket a the end of each job.
Here’s the first post I did on Capt. Log, whose days delivering fuel as a single-skin tanker are numbered.
