    The waterfront during a lockout

    I thought I'd throw a few pics up of what life is like on the docks with no longshoremen. We locked 'em out a few days ago, and it's like a ghost town around here. There's a good reason to take some pics!!

    Here's a shot of the Hyundai Kingdom, halfway loaded.



    Same ship, stern end. (the good end!)



    One of our many reach stackers.



    My office!



    Catching up on some reading...



    I may throw some short video clips up when we get rolling again.
    When they kick at your front door, how you gonna come? With your hands at your head, or the trigger of your gun?

    Read the latest issue of "Machinery Lubrication" and try to stay awake.

    But now they're back, and I'm busy as hell keepin' them in line.
