    We need more law to correct this. Make all commerical fisherman get drug tested, have a captains license, and in this case a green card.

    Yeah and make hamburger fry cooks get bachelors degrees, espresso baristas need black belts in karate, Alaska State Troopers need PHD's in Psychology, make it mandatory for the news paper carrier to get journalism degrees and have their own talk show, the busboy at Dennys must serve 4 years in the Marine Corps w/ at least 6 continuous months K/P duty, require all charter boats to pack an observer to keep their blatant lawlessness in check, Make charter ops pay local city income tax (we all know they don't spend a dime in Alaska), Make the charter ops get D.E.C inspected and they should also have processor licenses and fish transport permits. All charter vessels need to be retrofitted and fully handicap accessible. All charter vessels will be equipped w/ separate facilities for men and women. It should be mandatory all charter ops have and EMT onboard w/ a defibrillation machine

    Haha! It would be just mean if they had drug testing for all permit holders and licensed deck hands. Not to mention if they had drug sniffing dogs greeting the boats when they arrived from Seattle. SE AK would riot, as they wouldn't be getting any of the "good stuff" anymore!

    Thats a great idea,the reason they always fight it is 50% of them are either to stupid to pass the coast guard exam or couldn't pass the drug test.

    Wow what an inflammatory remark! Captain T-wat are you thinking?
    Why would you push for fishermen to submit to drug tests when the teachers teaching our kids or the police patrolling our neighborhoods aren't even required to? Get a hold of yourself Captain!

    Background checks are pretty easy for me I simply ask my crew members parents how their grades and behavior are in school. The worst case scenario I've run into is my deck hand didn't wear his teeth retainer like his mom instructed. Oh and they're pretty hard to rack out of the bunk but thats not cause of drugs its because they work pretty hard for teenagers.

    This thread is having a hard time getting off the ground... Hey captain T wat could we say to get things bumping around here? I'd hate to see Capt DD's thread die

    TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 2010
    Dutch Harbor report
    From the local police blotter:

    Ambulance request, Oct. 31 EMS responded to the airport to transport a patient from the Coast Guard helicopter to the clinic.

    Drug law violation, Nov. 1 Doorman reported a line of cocaine was found in the men's room. Investigation did not reveal the owner, and surprisingly no one claimed they had lost the expensive powder. The cocaine was seized for destruction.

    Roads, Nov. 2 Public Safety notified the roads chief of the first icy roads of the year.

    Assistance rendered, Nov. 3 Officer settled a disagreement between a captain and resigning employee. The employee was to be given money for travel expenses to return home. The captain needed him to sign a form before receiving the money. The employee would not sign the form before receiving the money and the captain would not hand over the money until the form was signed. The officer offered to act as broker and hold the money while the form was signed, which the squabbling pair accepted as more reasonable than the current zero-sum game they were pursuing.
