Subject: RE: BS: Exxon: Drunk Ship Captains Wanted...
I was on an oiler docked in Newfoundland. Three attempts at docking in poor weather. I could smell the booze as I went through the door of Cappy's office. The bottle of gin was on his desk beside the empty one. I have never seen eyes that red. And, Cappy's eyes were worse than the ship's cat that drinking out of Cappy's glass.
