We've been loading the ship with black oil for two days, bored to tears while the shoreside gang drags ass. Sometime during the overnight tonight we'll slip our mooring lines and head 8 hours down the Mississippi and to sea, there to round Florida and head for NY. Should be a little under 5 days, and comes at a nice time... I'm ready to get out of the gulf, and days go by a LOT faster when we're under way, making way.
