What does everyone do for work?

Recommended Posts

Adam,

 

Ever hitched your float tube to one of those salmon pens? That might get exciting. Although I suspect the excitement may come from kicking your way through those shipping lanes where the ferry goes.

 

Michael

Not nearly as exciting as trying to kick your escape route with an angry pen owner running you down !!!

Welcome Virg. Your beginnings sound a lot like mine.

 

You didn't say anything about yourself (where in the world you hang out, what you do/did for a living, etc.) and your profile is empty. Come clean... tell us about your years as a CIA spy, good friends with James Bond.

Wrong thread lmfao

I know. I read his intro on the intro forum, then got sidetracked and came back to the wrong place. I caught him finally.

No salmon pens on the coast of Finland, only fishing nets & HEAPS of them! All the pens are on the coast of Norway where escapies have desroyed the wild Atlantic salmon population! I've read that the best estamation of how many true wild Atlantic salmon are left is only less then a 10th of 1%! I genrally stay out of the ship lanes, but have gone to shore when i have seen them, have to piss sometime!

What the heck, I'll play.

Started out 25 years ago as a structural steel detailer, pencil whipping piperacks and flues and ducts for the petrochemical industry for 7 years. Spent 10 years designing end-of-line devices for the industrial firefighting business, and the rest of it as a civil/structural designer, back into the petrochemical industry.

The middle job was the most fun. Somebody gets an idea, scribbles it on a napkin, then I get to design and test the prototypes. Figured out that firefighters are big boys with big squirt guns.

One of the trailer mounted nozzles would fill an Olympic-sized swimming pool, 600 feet downrange, in about 10 minutes. That's a he...ck of a lot of flying water.

Commercial fisherman. I started Longlining Halibut/Sablefish in Alaska, then had 2 sons, so I fish in the Sound now for Dungeness/Opilio Crab and Spot Prawns.
