Began my employment with Marquette as an experienced deckhand and quickly was promoted to the position of 2nd mate. This position included supervision of 3 sometimes 4 deckhands on their daily tasks and responsibilities, picking up and wiring barges together for transport of different cargos to certain destinations up and down the inland waterways which included the Ohio river, upper and lower Mississippi, the Illinois river, and the Tennessee river. Maintaining the barges in tow was one of the many responsibilities for this position that included, keeping the wires that held the barges together tight, checking all void tanks on all barges for water and report any that's found. All void tanks with 3 inches or more of water were to be pumped out with a 2 in. or 3 in. gas or diesel powered pump then inspected for leaks and damage then make any repairs that are needed then fill out a report and keep for any future inquiries. Another responsibility was the upkeep, cleanliness, and organization on the inside and outside of the towboat which included cleaning the inside of the boat every watch, every day and keeping the rigging and lines organized. Safety meetings were discussed every day at the start of every watch and safety drills were performed once a week and an occasional surprise safety drill.
After a year and a half of the 2nd mates position, there was a training position as an oiler opened up to learn the duties of a Chief Engineer. This position included a lot of cleaning and familiarizing myself with the engines, generators, and all electrical, plumbing, and some hydraulics. These were my responsibilities that were carried out for 1 year then was promoted to Relief Chief Engineer. With my promotion came the responsibility of performing the duties of the chief engineer unsupervised during his days off. Started every watch with a visual walk through of the upper engine room, the generator room, the lower engine room, and the rudder room. Checked all fluids in the engines, generators, and all motorized components. Engine maintenance was performed by manufacturers requirements that included changing oil and fuel filters on engines and generators when they reached a certain amount of hours specified in the maintenance specs. Another task performed was receiving fuel from a fuel flat that tied off to the side of our boat which a large six inch hose was connected to the fuel receiving station and the fuel flat would pump it to our tanks and would also dispose of used oil, fuel, and used filters. A daily log was kept every watch that included all maintenance performed, all gauges and monitors were read and written in that daily log at the beginning, middle, and end of every six hour watch. If there were any electrical or plumbing issues anywhere on the boat, it was the responsibility of the engineer to troubleshoot and repair these issues.
Served in the United States Army from 1983 till 1989 with an Honorable discharge. During my time in basic training my focus and determination to do my best earned the position of squad leader and two weeks later earned the position of Assistant platoon leader. During my training after basic I was awarded an achievement medal and certificate for classes I taught on the proper use of camouflage on your person and on vehicles. After the training I was attached to a MASH unit and became the senior supply specialist and unit armorer in which I was responsible for issuance of all field gear, uniforms, vehicles, rifles, and anything else that had a requisition number. Another example of the logistical skills i can offer.
