It's been a rather long feeling night building this 13 barge tow. With the wind, rain, and sudden temperature drop my deckhands have had nasty cold and damp time wiring this tow up with very little breaks...
I know how they feel, I've been in the same types of weather and worse but you just make the best of it. Can't say I would trade places with them. I don't miss that shit for nothing.
Yet another night and we are at it again, building an eight pack with 5 empties and 3 loads. It's not hard but it is rather slow because I only have two deckhands and no tugs helping us out.
So far it's almost 3am and my crew are almost done wiring two of the loads in, all empties are in place. I have no clue where the last load is at. Maybe if we get lucky one of these tugs will get it in the clear and bring it to us.
