A very efficient lock gate repair, all in a days work
The last time we went into this dry dock it was filthy and needed a days work just to work out of the mud. This time when I booked the dock I asked for it to be cleaned without much expectation, however I must of asked nicely because a team arrived and spent the day cleaning to high standard.
A joke to finish
A pirate walked into a bar and the bartender said,
“Hey, I haven’t seen you in awhile. What happened? You look terrible.”“What do you mean?” said the pirate, “I feel fine.”“What about the wooden leg? You didn’t have that before.”“Well, we were in a battle and I got hit with a cannon ball, but I’m fine now.”“Well, o.k., but what about that hook? What happened to your hand?”“We were in another battle. I boarded a ship and got into a sword fight. My hand was cut off.”“I got fitted with a hook. I’m fine, really.”“What about that eye patch?”“Oh, one day we were at sea and a flock of birds flew over.I looked up and one of them shit in my eye.”“You’re kidding,” said the bartender, “you couldn’t lose an eye just from some bird shit.”“It was my first day with the hook.”
