972.70 Report Sea Turtle activity to 1-866-887-8535 Keep an eye out for sea turtles on Texas beaches over the next several months. Sea turtle nesting season runs from April to September and you can play a vital role in protecting the populations of these turtles. If you see a nesting turtle, please call 1-866-TURTLE5 (1-866-887-8535) and report the location. Please keep your distance and do not disturb the turtle during its nesting activities. If possible, remain at the site until a biologist arrives. With the public’s help, we can increase populations of critically endangered species like the Kemp’s Ridley Sea Turtle. These three species of sea turtle nest regularly on on Texas beaches. The Leatherback and Hawksbill sea turtles visit our waters but do not nest.

The Texas state record for a blue marlin is 972.70 pounds. This massive blue marlin was caught on The Legacy by Capt. Kevin Deerman and his 8-man crew on July 11, 2014. There is a full body mount of the fish at the Rockport Aquarium.

97 The private recreational angler red snapper season opens in Texas on June 1, 2019 for a projected 97-days in federal waters. Red snapper fishing is open year around in state waters. 2 fish per person daily with a 16 inch minimum size limit in federal waters and 4 fish per person daily with a 15 inch minimum in state waters.

Name that fish

31 B. Skipjack Mullet C. Bonefish D. Silver Whiting

ANSWER: C. The Bonefish (Albula vulpes) is a highly prized sportfish that puts up a tremendous fight for its size. These elusive fish are also known as the “Gray Ghosts of the Flats,” due to their sharp eyesight and skittish nature. Anglers seek bonefish out on shallow flats and sight cast with fly rods or light tackle. They are typically a catch-and-release species.

A. Ladyfish

Lookdown fish are members of the jack family, which has 31 species in the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico. They have extremely flat, silvery bodies and make great table fare.

Gulf Coast Mariner Magazine May/June 2019







By Capt. Joe Kent


ften I receive questions

from anglers about shrimping and what it takes to use a sport (non-commercial) shrimp trawl. The lure of going out and catching a nice batch of shrimp for either fishing or table fare intrigues many anglers with boats and just about all of them want to know what it takes to operate a shrimp trawl, license requirements and the pros and cons of going after shrimp around the Galveston Bay Complex. As I once prided myself as a sport shrimper, we will discuss many aspects of this sport in hopes of acquainting those interested with some of the basic information. First, let’s take a look at the expense of the trawl and related equipment needed.


Gulf Coast Mariner Magazine May/June 2019

Fresh caught shrimp can become perfect bait or a seafood dinner.

The largest trawl allowed for sport or recreational use is a 20-foot trawl. Most of the trawls on the market range from 10 to 20 feet. Large trawls require a commercial shrimping license. Like just about all sporting equipment, the prices for shrimp trawls run the gamut from reasonable to expensive. On the average you should expect to pay around $600.00 for the maximum-sized sport or bait trawl and even the smaller sizes are not too far from that. Recreational shrimpers must have a Texas Fishing License and a Saltwater Endorsement. Additionally, each trawl must have a special tag commonly referred to as a shrimp tag. Now, what type of boat and motor are suitable for recreational shrimping? While it is hard to pinpoint the best boat for this, there are certain features that are desirable and not desirable. A Jon boat at least 14 feet in length powered by at least a 15 hp outboard is about the minimum and one suitable for back bays and protected waters. Larger, more seaworthy boats are needed for open waters. There should be plenty of unobstructed room in the rear of the boat for loading and unloading the trawl. One thing for

sure is that your boat will get quite dirty during the process. Sport shrimpers are allowed two quarts of shrimp per person per day with a maximum of four quarts per boat per day. Besides shrimp, many species of shell fish and small fin or bait fish are caught while dragging the trawl. Now, before you take the plunge and purchase your shrimp trawl, let’s look at some of the pros and cons of recreational shrimping. Operating a shrimp trawl by hand is a physically exhausting activity. I shrimped up until about 20 years ago and gave it up due to the physical stress that a post-50 year-old just did not want to endure to have fun. As mentioned earlier, shrimping will bring mud, slime, and all sorts of debris into your boat. For that reason I had a 15foot Jon boat designated just for dragging my trawl and putting out and retrieving crab traps. Other not so fun things associated with this sport are hanging the net on submerged debris and other objects that take time and effort to untangle or get free. Shrimping takes time away from fishing, if your are trawling for bait to fish

that morning. If there was one negative that I want to emphasize that would be not to have high expectations of catching a lot of shrimp. Yes, at times, that is the case; however, the likelihood of your taking your limit each time is very low. Now, let’s look at the pros of shrimping! It is a fun sport with each retrieval of the trawl bringing intrigue as to what might be in the net. Each quart of live shrimp you catch saves you about $20 at the bait shop. Crabs are almost a given when shrimping and for those who enjoy eating crab, this would be a big benefit. While it is illegal to retain game fish caught in a sport trawl, there are a lot of other fish that often are part of the catch. For offshore anglers, lots of chum is taken with each drag. The surprise element is that there are always all sorts of marine life to be picked up off of the bottom, including lots of stingrays of all sizes. Once an alligator gar got caught up in the net and that was not a fun experience getting it out. I have mostly pleasant thoughts of the years I shrimped off of Seabrook and would bring home some good seafood and bait. While there is a lot more to this sport, some of the pointers above may prove useful and should give you a better idea of what is involved and hopefully get you started!

Make protection from the sun a priority By Captain David C. Dillman GalvestonBayCharterFishing.com 832-228-8012


s a child, I never worried

about problems associated with the sun and it’s rays. I grew up around water all my life, from swimming in our backyard pool during my early years, to spending my weekends fishing Matagorda at the family cabin. Then I got my first set of “wheels” and it was off to the beach every chance we got, as long as the sun was shining. After college, I worked a nine year stint with the YMCA. Outdoor activities were a big part of the job. Over the last 30 years I have owned and operated a fishing charter service. Once May came around, I can remember watching television and seeing those ads for Coppertone Sun Tanning Lotion. These ads would continue all the way through Summer. I was one of those that didn’t need much help achieving that dark tan. During these three decades, the 60s, 70s, and 80s, not many of these commercials advertised the use of a sun

blocking product, only tanning lotions and oils. The harmful effects of the sun’s rays were very seldom or at all mentioned. Last August my bottom lip developed severe blisters. I fished four days in a row, in the Gulf, prior to the breakout. I went to one of those urgent care clinics and the doctor attributed the blisters to severe sunburn of the lip. This had never happened to me before but I did not question the diagnosis. After a couple weeks of medicine, blisters went away but my lip was still tender. This past March, the problem started again. This time, under the advice of a friend, I went to UTMB Dermatology. They gave me some medicine to help heal the blisters, but also ordered a biopsy of my bottom lip. After the results, I am now on a topical chemotherapy treatment, which I began in early April. All of this was caused by damage from the sun. During the past 25 years, much more knowledge has come to light about the harmful effects from over exposure to the sun. These days, the use of sunscreen and sun protective clothing is advertised across all media platforms. I seldom used any protection at all from the sun. I can now honestly say, “take precautions from the sun!”

Trout Fishing Starts I always called May and June the official start of “trout fishing” in Galveston Bay. For myself and some others, the “season” never stops. But starting in May, one will notice a increase in boats on the weekends and by June, people will be out seeking trout in earnest. Everything seems to fall in place for some great fishing. Lower and Middle Galveston Bay, East Bay and even Trinity Bay should all produce nice catches of trout. The closure of the boat ramps under the Clear Lake Bridge will impact lots of boaters. Eagle Point Fishing Camp is a great alternative. They boast a three lane ramp, with ample dockage, secure parking, live bait, tackle, snacks, drinks, ice and clean restrooms to accommodate your angling or boating needs for the day. They can be reached at (281) 339-1131 for updates on conditions and bait supply. Remember to be courteous on the water and protect yourself from over exposure of the sun. See ya on the bay!!




for that new honey hole. I mean, the extra effort and difficulty will reap equal rewards right? That sometimes rings very true but is not always the case. I made it a point to get out, paddle and explore new areas this year. Numerous trips in, I started noticing a trend: a surprising amount of good catches came from spots I typically passed during the journey to the “honey hole.” Sometimes it was a shad flip, a hovering bird, or even a last ditch effort that put me on a location but you can’t argue with results of trout, redfish and flounder. Believe me, I won’t discount these ‘easy’ spots in the future.

That’s a paddlin’ Tales and observations from a floating piece of plastic By Brandon Rowan

GREENER PASTURES “Yup that’s the spot.” In the back of the marsh, far removed from the beaten path and at least several miles away from the launch. Yup, that’s the one.” I don’t know about you, but that train of thought has definitely danced across my mind while scanning Google Earth

HEAD ON A SWIVEL Even subtle signs, like a single shad or mullet flip, can expose feeding fish underneath an otherwise calm water surface. Hell, what’s one more extra cast? Plus, it’s a pretty triumphant moment when the thump of a good fish confirms your suspicions. Birds can be your guide in the marsh too. Hovering terns and gulls are a dead give away to activity but don’t discount shore walkers, like the Spoonbill. Their lives depend on their ability to find bait. Where there’s bait, there are predators.

I caught a lot of fish in late winter and early spring on these super model Down South Lures. Special colors, like this plum/chartreuse mullet eye and Purple Reign sans chartreuse tail, can only be found at special events like the Houston Boat Show and Fishing Show. Contact DSL owner Michael Bosse at 210.865.8999 for information on availability.


Gulf Coast Mariner Magazine May/June 2019

MEAT’S ALWAYS ON THE MENU Knowledge of your area and the available forage through each season is crucial. Late winter and early spring was a great time to throw mullet imitations and I leaned on topwaters and big plastics like the Down South Lures super model. But the days lengthened, the trees began to bloom and it wasn’t long before the bay was flush with freshly hatched bait species. Predators don’t overthink fishing locations and easy spots. They are opportunistic feeders and love easy meals. Later in spring, I starting throwing small baitfish imitations, like the smaller sized Rapala Twitchin’ Mullet. One foggy April afternoon I was rewarded with a beautiful 27” speckled trout. I found her intercepting small shad forced back into the cove by a hard wind driven current. After a spirited fight, measurement and quick picture, I set her free and watched her swim away strong. SHRIMP DINNER Looking ahead to May and June, shrimp imitations will be a good bet. The surf is going to start looking real flat and I’ll be ditching the kayak for west end beach wading or seawall rock hopping. I love catching trout on topwater, but by far some of my most productive days have come from rigging a clear/gold D.O.A. Shrimp under a popping cork. Glassy surf and its fishy possibilities are the stuff of dreams. But the stout early summer winds of the upper coast are often our reality. If that’s the case, you’ll find me in my favorite stretch of marsh chasing redfish. They eat small in my spot and rarely turn down a 2” Vudu Shrimp under a short leader and oval cork. It’s about to get hot my friends so take care to keep yourself hydrated and safe. I hope to see you all out there!

Subsurface twitch baits like this Rapala Twitchin’ Mullet are just plain fun to fish and productive, too. I caught my biggest trout of the year, 27 inches, on this olive green 06 model.

Egret Baits’ 2” Vudu Shrimp under an oval cork is a favorite in the marsh when fish are keyed in on itty bitty shrimp. I like pearl/chart or glow.

WE ASK captains, guides and those in the industry what they’re throwing, for what species and what they’re drinking after a long day of fishing.

A Night of Fundraising and Fun at CCA Brazoria County’s Annual Banquet Photos and story by Kelly Groce


he Brazoria County

CCA Annual Banquet was held on Friday, April 5 at the DOW Academic Center at the Brazosport College in Lake Jackson. The building was packed with CCA members participating in raffles and fundraising in support of the CCA Brazoria County Chapter Live auction items included allinclusive trips to fishing resorts in Costa Rica and Panama, offshore charters, hunting and water fowl trips, fishing rods, guns, paintings by coastal artists such as Anastasia Musick and so much more. Silent auction

items included fishing rods, reels, and fishing gear galore, coolers and paintings. I put almost all of my raffle tickets in for a Waterloo Phantom rod with a Shimano Sahara reel and I won! For dinner, they had a delicious fried shrimp and fish plate that I washed down with a cold Galveston Island Brewing Tiki Wheat beer. Be on the lookout for your CCA Chapter’s Annual Banquet in the near future. I encourage you to attend this fun night of raising money with like-minded individuals. I want to say thank you to the CCA Brazoria County Chapter for the invitation and to D.O.A. Fishing Lures for donating items to their silent auction.

Anytime we are fishing bluewater in the Gulf of Mexico, we always have a dead swim bait or pitch bait handy at all times. This is typically a ballyhoo or Spanish mackerel, and rigged differently if pitched to a fish in the spread or pulled behind the boat and “rigged to swim.” The key for us is to rig a dead bait that will entice a hungry fish to feed once you have raised it behind the boat (in the spread). When it’s time to cool off, I enjoy a cold La Croix. These carbonated water drinks come in a variety of flavors and are said to have no sugars or artificial ingredients. They are good straight from the can, over ice or mix with your favorite adult beverage. Stay away from my Kiwi Sandia! Ha!

I’m using a 1/16 oz. D.O.A. Short Shanked Jig Head and D.O.A. 5.5” Jerk Shad tipped on a 30” piece of fluorocarbon leader and a loop knot to tie the bait to my line for better action. I’m working this bait ultra shallow, with a erratic side-to-side presentation for big sow trout spawning along the grassy edges of Baffin Bay. After fishing the Laguna Madre all day I drink a cold Modelo Especial during the sunset! Capt.

AS-GOOD-AS-IT-GETS FISHING IN THE LOWER LAGUNA MADRE By Capt. Lee Alvarez SouthPadreIslandFishingTrips.com

(956) 330-8654


here really is no

better time of the year for me than right now. Baseball season has begun, summer is looming on the horizon and fishing in the Lower Laguna Madre near South Padre Island is just about as good as it gets. Throw in the fact that you can once again fish in comfortable clothing, and there really isn’t a whole lot to complain about. That is unless you don’t like a little bit of extra wind. May and June in South Texas also means strong winds, which can sometimes blow in the 35-40 mph range. Increasing temperatures combined with hard winds on the shallow flats

of the LLM often brings good fishing. When water is blown out and potholes or grass beds are nearly impossible to see, long casts with 10 lb or 12 lb FINS Windtamer Braid will get your lures out further from the boat. This gives an angler a better opportunity to hook up when blind casting. Maintaining a good distance from fish is critical to keep from spooking them and windy days typical of this time of year will help increase that distance. In these types of conditions, one of the easiest and most effective methods for locating fish is to use a soft plastic lure worked under a popping cork. One of my favorite techniques is to tie on a 3” D.O.A. Shrimp (Glow/ Holographic Flake Belly or Nite Glow/Chartreuse) with a 1/8

to 1/16 ounce jighead fished under an oval-shaped cork. This method (which works best in 3-5 feet of murky to off colored water) has been producing great numbers of keeper sized speckled trout for my clients. Under windy conditions, popping corks make a little extra commotion for your lure and help get it noticed. With the brightest cork that you can find, give several quick jerks of the rod tip to pop the floater and let it sit still. Repeat. Vary the length of time you allow the cork to rest in the water. A fish will eat your lure when the cork is still and upright and your bait is suspended in the water column. On many of my recent charters, my clients have been hooking up to solid 18 – 26 inch trout using a D.O.A. Shrimp tied to 24 inches of fluorocarbon leader line under a cork. Many of the trout that have been caught have been

spitting up shrimp which we have perfectly matched with our lures. The 2019 Shallow Sport Boat Owners Tournament on South Padre Island is just around the corner and this year’s tournament has some exciting new rule changes. In an effort to promote conservation, Shallow Sport has decided to change the format of this year’s tournament from an individual to a team competition. This is one of the largest boat owner tournaments in the state (263 boats registered last year) and this awesome measure will dramatically decrease the number of fish killed during the tourney and will keep our bays healthy and stocked for future generations of anglers to enjoy.

Everything you need for your boat, all in one place By Xander Thomas


ny boat, any size,

anything you need, The Boat Yard in Kemah is here to help. They are authorized to work on any brand, so


no matter how many boats you need work on, from whichever brand, they got you covered. General Manager of The Boat Yard, Chet Morampudi, says that they are one-of-akind, being the only dealer in Texas authorized to work on every make. Not only can he fix up just about any water craft that one might bring in,

Gulf Coast Mariner Magazine May/June 2019

but he offers any service the you might need for it. “We do boat maintenance, engine service, fiberglass repairs, trailer repairs, all electronic installations,” Chet said. He says that many places won’t work on fiberglass, but he wants his place to be a one-stop-shop for all boaters and sailors. He even offers mobile help, and for people within about a 15 mile radius who cannot bring their boat in, they will come to you to do the work. Even if you are further out and want his assistance, they will actually bring a trailer to pick up larger crafts that the owner may not want, or be able to transport. They take it into the shop, and deliver it back to the marina once work is done. “Even though some people are 20-30 miles away with a huge boat and no trailer, we can still provide them with trailering services.”

In general, he likes to be pretty considerate of the needs of anyone bringing him work. He offers a service for fishing guides, that if they call ahead and tell him what they need done, he can order the parts ahead of time and get their ship in and out of the shop as quickly as possible. “I know that it’s their living, and they have to be in and out quick, and we try to help them out. I just tell them to give me a call when they’re coming, and when they come in we quickly order everything they want,” he said, “Most people take like 1-2 weeks to get a boat done.” He does this so that they aren’t losing out on any more income than they have to while getting the care that their boat needs. On top of being able to work on everything and do anything you need, he also says that his prices are more than fair.

The Boat Yard is a certified dealer for Freedom Boats USA.

“We are still the lowest charging dealership around. For most of them, the range is like $125 an hour, but we still do $110.” Chet said, “If they are first responders we only charge them $99.” He likes to help those who help others, offering veterans, teachers and first responders 10% off on all labor. “Also, they don’t get charged for finance fees,” he said, “They also get $500 off

on make, prep, ready fees.” The Boat Yard sells boats, as well. He says that while he mostly deals new crafts, he does take trade-ins, and will do consignment. So even if you don’t have your new vehicle for sea life yet, he can hook you up. The Boat Yard is located in Kemah, at 1145 FM 518, right at the intersection of Lawrence Rd. and 518.



The Bugatti In The Lake By Lara Rodgers


remillion & Co. Fine Art

will loan painting by German artist Eric Peters, that was inspired by the mystique of “The Bugatti In The Lake” to Keels and Wheels, May 3-5 at the Lakewood Yacht Club. Keels and Wheels, started by Bob and Judy Fuller 24 years ago, is the largest classic car and vintage wooden boat show in the country and has raised close to $2 million benefitting Today’s Harbor For Children. Mr. Fuller, chairman of the event, is close personal friends with Peter Mullin, owner of the legendary historic Bugatti that rested at the bottom of Lake Maggiore for 75 years. The car was allegedly lost in a poker game in Paris by famous Champion Grand Prix driver, René Dreyfus to Swiss playboy poker player Adabert Bodé. Authorities seized the car at the Italian-Swiss border for lack of proper documentation and fees. Their policy was to destroy the car once the fine surpassed its value. The decision was made to lower the Bugatti into the lake. Decades passed and it became only a

This Eric Peters painting brings the mystery of the legend of the Bugatti In The Lake experience to Keels and Wheels.

romantic mythical legend for many years until it was discovered by divers in 1967. A local dive club resurrected the car in 2009 to honor the son of one of the dive club members who had been brutally beaten by a local youth gang and died from injuries caused by the incident. The car was auctioned off to raise money to benefit a local charity against youth violence. Peter Mullins, owner of Mullins Bugatti Museum in Oxnard, California won the car in the auction. Mr. Mullin has participated in Keels and Wheels for 10 years, exhibiting several of his prized Bugatti motor cars. This year he will feature his 1931 Type 49 Bugatti. Erik Peters, a renowned German artist, was captivated by the enigma and romance of the story of the Bugatti In The Lake and was inspired to create the painting. Mr. Peters felt passionately

that the Bugatti belonged in the lake. His luminous painting creates the illusion of the Bugatti being lowered back into the depths of lake. Light streams down through the rippled water as the car is lowered back to its resting place 173 feet below the surface on the salty floor of the lake. The paper hybrid canvas appears to replicate the rusted metal on the car. Gremillion & Co. Fine Art is providing the artwork, supported by Bay Area Houston Magazine, to be on display at the Keels and Wheels event. The 7’ x 11’ work of art captures this mysterious, romantic experience of the Bugatti Type 22 Brescia Roadster, resurrected from the bottom of the lake. Houstonians, Bay Area residents and all who wish to attend will be able to experience the legend of the Bugatti In The Lake. Experts will be on hand to walk people through the experience and answer questions. The event will be held May 3-5 at the Lakewood Yacht Club in Seabrook, Texas. Tickets to Keels and Wheels and this magical mythical experience can be purchased online at Keels-Wheels.com. The Eric Peters painting will be revealed in a special brief presentation in the ballroom of the yacht club on all three days at 1:00 pm. The Bugatti In The Lake is available for purchase during the event and a portion of the proceeds will benefit Today’s Harbor For Children.

Tom Tollett donates 1953 MG TD Roadster to the Galveston Bay Foundation Tom Tollett, owner of Tommy’s Restaurant & Oyster Bar, has offered his 1953 MG TD roadster as a generous donation to the Galveston Bay Foundation.

By Cindy Nguyen Though darker meats

of the Gulf like Amberjack and Kingfish are not the most sought table fare, it’s hard for me to release a nice Amberjack knowing what a crowd pleaser these bruisers can be! It’s taken me a few tries to get this dip the way I like it and I hope you all enjoy it as well! Marinate overnight: • 1lb - Amberjack fillets • Italian Dressing • 1 Tbs Brown Sugar • Dash of Old Bay Smoke at 200° for 2 hrs After removing from the smoker, using gloves, break the fish down into a bowl of flaky meat. Add the following

ingredients one at a time and blend until consistency reaches a nice heavy spread. • • • • • • • •

1 Tsp Minced Garlic 3 Stalks of Celery Chopped 1 Chopped Jalapeño 1/2 Chopped Red Onion 1/2 Cup of real Mayonnaise (I use Duke’s) 1 package of Cream Cheese 1 handful of Chopped Cilantro 1 Tsp of Saté Chili (this will give it a little heat and nice color)

Tip: Using a stand mixer will make this much easier. Refrigerate and serve chilled with your favorite chips or crackers.

Delicious fish dip is one hard AJ fight away.

The Maritime Industry IS Vital to America’s Growth For example, Alaska and Hawaii, as well as Puerto Rico are dependent upon merchant ships bringing most all goods from the US ports to their country. The categorization of all our professions fall into 3 major categories: 1. The extraction and collection of all the raw materials provided by Mother Earth. This category includes agriculture, raising animals, mining, oil exploration, fisheries and forestry. By Tony Panagiotareas


any people today

do not realize that a great number of possessions in our homes came by sea transport on a merchant vessel. Also, most people do not know that the United States is a maritime nation, and we have been one since our inception. Furthermore, the United States has over 5,300 colleges and universities, but we have only 7 Merchant Marine Academies. These schools prepare navigation and engine officers who after graduation will man and operate merchant ships.


2. The second category of professions is manufacturing. Those are the procurers of raw materials converted to finished goods. For example, the cotton or wool that’s made into clothing, iron ore that’s converted to steel and so on. 3. The third category is services. We must understand that the raw materials may not necessarily be located near manufacturing factories or near the consumers. Merchant marine service is the vital link that connects all three together. Today’s merchant marine is essential to transporting

Gulf Coast Mariner Magazine May/June 2019

raw materials at the manufacturing locations, then loading finished products and bringing to market and ultimately the consumer. International trade and 90-95% of the transportation is done by the world’s ships. The United States, Canada, and Argentina are the biggest producers of cereal on the globe. Cereal includes corn, wheat, barley, maze etc. Asia does not produce any cereals, and Japan imports 80% of their cereals from the United States and Canada. The majority of these commodities are loaded on ships in Astoria, Oregon and Vancouver, Canada. We also export to China, South Korea, Malaysia and the rest of the Asian countries. Finally, industrialized countries like Brazil, Australia and South Africa are the biggest producers of iron ore, the primary ingredient

“America’s growth continues to be dependent on modernized merchant ships.” in producing steel. Those countries export iron ore to Europe, Asia and North America as their countries needs grow. The United States ranks number 3 in the world as producers of crude oil and natural gas. The large discovery of oil in the Permian Basin furthered our export supply globally. Our local Port of Houston is the second largest port by volume in the United States. It is only second to South Louisiana which serves the entire Mississippi River from the Delta to Baton Rouge. The Port of Houston is a major economic driver not

only to the local Houston economy but also beyond. It generates highly paid maritime jobs, such as stevedores, crane operators, port personnel, administrative security, truckers, ship pilots, etc. Also add the hundreds of shipping companies that supply the ships and vessels with food, stores, and much more. Then include firms that provides services, repair, maintenance, delivery companies deliver spare parts from all over the world and ship crew, custom brokers, freight forwarders, and container companies. The Port of Houston rely on many service companies and firms like Oceanus that inspect and survey vessels. Finally one can easily see that America’s growth continues to be dependent on modernized merchant ships. A VLCC, a Very Large Crude Carrier, can carry 300,000 metric tons, or 2 million barrels of crude oil. She is at GOLA, the Galveston Offshore Lightering Area, 60 nautical miles from land which receives cargo from a small tanker. Pictured at the top left, is a geared bulk carrier. It carries bulk cargoes, such as agricultural products, coal, iron ore, wood, as well as pipes, steel plates etc. A versatile ship that has 4 cranes fitted so it can use its own means to discharge the cargo in ports where there are no facilities to unload. Maritime expert Tony Panagiotareas is originally from Athens, Greece and is a graduate from Texas A&M, Galveston. He is the president and founder of Oceanus Maritime Services LLC. The firm provides technical services to mainly Greek and Singaporean clients who frequent US ports. Gulf Coast Mariner Magazine is proud to introduce Panagiotareas as our new feature writer.
