That is nothing short of irresponsible, childish and downright unnecessary.

Where can I get one?

'The boat that just passed you is a Seadoo"

Sorry to be churlish but I don't recall ever being passed by a seadoo.

Always enjoyed though when they would come out to play. No. 5 drive with a cleaver can do a wonderful hosedown when then would get too familiar.

BTW, isn't sea doo some sort of marine excrement?

Same line of work then Johnny dude, control systems for Bop's and x-mas trees.. I'm working for FMC Energy systems, currently on the Roncador field, but we are also doing some patch work on all the ABB screwups over here

Yep we produce control systems for Xmas trees. To you and me that sounds perfectly normal but everyone else probably thinks I produce the little box's that make fairly lights flash on and off and change colour

Also we dont just screw up in Brazil but all over the world.

Production, I'am a test engineer. I test all the electronic/electrical topside and subsea stuff before it gets shipped out the door. I dont work offshore.
