Sorta...
It was hurricane Bob, and I was the "engineer" on the Gwen Lyn, a work boat owned by D & B boat rentals out of Abbyville, LA. We pulled into our dock at Intracoastal City carrying a load of offshore workers we were evacuating because of the hurricane. The port Captain ordered us to head back out to evacuate more workers, so away we went. The hurricane wasn't so bad, but it was getting worse. We went through the locks, entered the Gulf, and that's when the shit hit the fan. We were in a hurricane.

We were loaded with water, almost submerged on the rear decks. I asked the captain if he wanted me to pump water out to raise us up, higher on the water, but the cap said no - we would bob around too much. Long story short, the cap opted to tie up to a wellhead and ride the storm out. Because he was a wuss boat driver, he set us tied up stern first instead of bow first. The incoming waves overwhelmed the scuppers and the waves entered the engine room vent ports, which should have been sealed. They weren't sealed because I was never told to do that, which I should have been told to do, but our Captain was a maroon and we weren't trained worth a shit.

As the boat was going down, I ran downstairs and made a MayDay call. That's a weird feeling, making a MayDay call. "MAYDAY! MAYDAY! GWEN LYN GOING DOWN IN THE 26 FIELD! MAYDAY! MAYDAY! MAYDAY!!! Plus, I was in the depths of the sinking boat. I was really not wanting to see water pouring down through the hatch. I escaped with seconds to spare.

A sister ship heard my call, as they were moored correctly and they came to our aid.

I remember being in the water, with all this shit that was on the loading deck swirling all around me, any of which could have killed me in a heartbeat if it struck me. It was actually more peaceful when I was in the water, as opposed to fighting to stay on the boat.

At the Coast Guard hearing, the Captain was found to be completely at fault.

Ever surfed?
Hmm... as the engineer you should have secured integrity without being told... but I wasn't there.

I rode a dive boat off Catalina Island with a professional surfer named Mike, but never rode a wave.

Ever read the fine print on a Budweiser can through 40 feet of crystal pure water?

Pro choice.

If your country was invaded, would you run and be a refuge or join a gorilla group and fight to the death ?

I ain’t seen any of the latest season yet, I’m waiting till it ends and then just binge watch it all, seeing spoilers don’t bother me.

If you could play any movie character ?

It's peanut butter and marshmallow whip on bread, but I think that was a play on being a fluffier for Big John.

Ever watched your child playing with her child and say "I'm so glad I made you?"

Not for me, but if you find one you should marry her.

Ever see a dog lick his balls and think ""I wish I could do that?"

No.

If you found a frog and it said it was really Prince Charming, would you kiss it or make loads of money from your talking frog ?

If the price was right.

Do you think people who have transplants like the heart or whatever, can take on some of the doners personality?

That's some stupid metaphysical shit right there. If you were gifted the setup to a joke would you bobble it?

I may be nuts, but I join tthe other nuts who think that metaphysics is nuts.

Do you believe that races from an advanced civilization on another planet benevolently visited our primitive ancestors and sped our development into civilization as we know it today?
