Here in Japan. It’s also Typhoon Season. We just left Yokohama heading for Okinawa, and it is rough as a motherfecker. Just the swell is 4 meters. Combined, it’s getting on 7. Mr Toad’s Wild Ride for the next 24 hours.

Insult to injury, we are down an A/C. The new motor, and belts showed up yesterday, but somehow, the one off mounting bolts got misplaced. The office “says” the bolts will be on the dock when we get to Naha Saturday evening.

APL President FD Roosevelt. The ship is only 10 years old, and it’s a beat piece of junk on the engineering side. The latest casualty is the cylinder lube oil pumps. There are two of them, and one of them has possibly failed. No way to troubleshoot with the main engine running. So the one they know works is running until we get to the dock in Naha Saturday evening. Container ship engine rooms are normally unmanned at sea between 5pm, and 8am, it’s just a duty engineer responding to alarms. Not this here ship. We are a watchstanding engine room.. licensed engineer, and unlicensed engineer on a four on, eight off rotation. The OT budget is $84K per department, per voyage. The engine department is consistently $30K over every voyage.
