I am a bulk commodities inspector.  I go just about everywhere in the southeast U.S. where commodities are loaded onto bulk cargo ships or containers.

Cool stuff Quentin.  you don't realize how large those ships are til you see them up close.  After Katrina- I was working in the South Pass field near the SW Pass opening to the gulf- and for some reason they weren't letting the ships in, so they were anchoring at the mouth of the pass.  They were about 2 miles away from our facility(about 10 of them) an they were huge!  We used to buzz them in our Helicopter just to check them out.

Awesome pics! I miss being on the water so much. I was a deck hand for a small marine towing company for a while. Then I worked at International Ship Repair here in the Port of Tampa as a deck hand on their tug boat. Moved the crane barges around and assisted putting the ships on and off the dry docks. Think those ships are huge, try walking underneath one that's blocked up on a dry dock, lol. That shit is crazy.

It's a baby bucket around 44 yards. The bigger ones run 65.
