The multibeam systems that we are using on this job are extremely rare. There are only a handfull of Reson 8150's in the world and replacement parts had to be ordered from the main office in Denmark. This gave us three days to check out South Beach, Miami and quench our thirsts in the bars
We got on Travelocity and split a couple rooms between seven guys so it was pretty cheap. That night we took Maimi by storm. Randomly, Zach Wallmark, they guy who played my senior project with me just happened to be living in South Beach about three blocks from where we had our hotel reservations so I called him up and we had a nice dinner on the company and he left before the night got really dubocherious. We did shots in the hotel bar, Tyler was too drunk to stand up so we put him to bed, not long after that I crashed out. I woke up a few hours later because people were making a ruckus in the room. Tyler had somehow woken up and was still drinking, turns out the majority of the crew closed out the bar at 6am. The morning was an interesting scene. Lots of headaches and groaning for water, a few glances at the camera and we realized that there were large gaps in the night that were photographed but nobody remembers them. I'm glad I went to sleep when I did. Tyler was in the most serious pain I think I've seen ever. I almost feel bad about asking if he wanted a raw bacon sandwich on a bed of eggshells with a glass of mayo..... collectively the guys threw up all over South Beach.
Tyler, Donny, and the client rep Dhuran went back to the boat that night. Brian the Geo, Matt the party chief, and I decided to stay one more night. We hit the clubs the second night and woke up with slightly less terrible headaches
Back in action with a working multibeam, maybe we will finally get away from US waters this time.... Oh, what's that you say? A hurricane? Headed exactly where we are going at exactly the time we plan on being there? Sure, I'm game....
