INSIGHTS FROM CAPTAIN GARRICK STANLEY — MD
Dear Fellow Seafarer, Welcome to the New Year. I sincerely hope that you and your family had an enjoyable and safe Christmas. Since our founding three years ago, GO has continued to build our business based on the core values of Integrity, Honesty and Service. From our inception, GO has faced a number of challenges, we have tackled tough problems, delivered new tonnage, chartered new territory and delivered results under enormous global pressure. In the process, we never lost sight of our commitment to exceed expectations, honour our commitments and stand up for our principles. Determination, hard work and the relentless desire to fulfill the company objectives has brought us this far. In moving forward I trust that you have received the announcement that Otto Marine has taken a position in the GO MARINE GROUP. The board’s agenda and mandate has always been to act in the best interest of our employees, deliver a service that exceeds expectation and to grow our business to become a global leader in our field. By entering into this agreement with Otto Marine we have the opportunity to deliver on that promise. I firmly believe that our core values and code of conduct make us different from other companies and will further contribute to our success. Our ethics of Integrity, Honesty and Service are not just the right thing to do but our duty everyday around the world. In achieving our objectives GO have made progress on many fronts and we know there is still much work to be done. We have a long horizon before us, which will require determination and resolve to ensure our success. Parallel to growing our operations through the capitalisation by Otto Marine, we are now focusing on deepening our commitment to our employees by embarking on new methodology to improve our service to you. I thank you for your patience in relation to delays in paying your superannuation contributions. All payments are now up to date and new processes implemented internally will ensure that this does not reoccur. GO will shortly be undertaking an employee survey so that we can fully understand the areas that we need to improve on and what areas of our operations that we are doing well. I urge you to provide your honest feedback so that we can implement what is necessary to achieve our objectives and make working for GO your first choice every time. Now, more than ever, I hope you unite behind GO as we all embark on this exciting journey of growth together. I thank you for your valuable contributions and efforts to date and I look forward to catching up with you onboard one of our vessels in the coming year.

If sharks can smell fear – I would have reeked of it. Eventually after about 5 hours (okay probably more like 5 minutes) my kite sorted itself out and I was able to do a water launch.

the car to pack up the kite gear.
Once setting up the kite and lines I headed out directly to sea cruising along the swell and hitting little jumps along the way. It was an absolute blast! When I realised I was approximately 2km off the shore I decided it was time to head back and travel along closer to the beach break. That’s about the time I looked over my shoulder and saw a massive shadow gliding behind me. I freaked. Still a novice to kitesurfing I didn’t know how to turn around without falling in the water first. As I crashed clumsily in the water – my kite also stacked and the lines tangled. What happened next made my guts drop and I felt like I would vomit. The ‘shadow’ now taking on the shape of a 3 meter shark was cruising about 5 feet underwater directly towards me. My scaly mate made its way under my crashed kite then straight between my legs and under me. “This is it… you are going to be one of the dickheads you read about in the paper that was too far offshore by himself and got chomped by a shark”

When I moved back to their offshore vessels, I found I didn’t like being Chief Mate anymore, and didn’t know what to do. But then out of the blue, I was offered a job on a 1981 built vessel with a small company as Master, and after a false start for joining, went to Dubai to pick it up. Needless to say, OMS were not impressed… After 2 weeks working in and out of the port of Jebel Ali, we sailed to Singapore, where we partially refitted, then another crew sailed to New Zealand (via PNG to avoid AMSA Port State Inspection!) where we completed a massive accommodation refurbishment in 6 days! That led on to the installation and support of a platform in the Cook Strait. Once that job was completed, there was no work for the ship so I was on the beach.

HOW MUCH IS THAT DOGGIE IN THE WINDOW? It’s the day you have made the big decision to buy a furry four legged companion! You have thought long and hard about the welcomed life change you are about to have. You hop in your car on a journey to the closest pet shop; still undecided about the type of dog you want to get so you check out the walkers and runners with a dog on their lead and picture yourself with that dog. Finally you are at the shops, excited to see what prizes are in the store. In stock are only one type of breed and you take a peek in their glass cages. Inside are 6 very cute, very small, Jack Russell Terriers on sale, so you ask the pet shop employee if you can meet them out of the cage, the em‐ ployee agrees as she can see how serious and interested you are. Immediately you are in love with the female. She becomes the one and only dog of your dreams. Realising you are ready, and knowing this little girl will fit in so well with you and your home, you make the decision to purchase……….
Believe it not, majority of puppies in a pet shops are from puppy factories. These large scale, commercial businesses, hold these animals in confined and unsanitary conditions and are expected to breed litter after litter for the rest of their lives. Dogs in puppy factories are treated as production animals as to maximise productivity and profit, not your best friend that their offspring will provide to you later. They are often permanently confined in very small, barren cages that do not provide sufficient space for the animal to move let alone exercise. They are expected to defecate and urinate in the same small, space where they give birth. These adult dogs are not socialized, exercised, bathed, and are given no veterinary precaution medication such as flea and heartworm prevention. Many young puppies do not survive the horrific conditions of their birth home, not to mention the dodgy transportation in the back of trucks from one place to another. Puppies that are sold to consumers generally suffer on‐going health problems and owners suffer the ongoing vet bills. The fact of the matter is, pet shops and the factory famers cut corners at every step of the way to maximise their profits, as a result, the animals and consumers suffer. PUT PUPPY FACTORIES OUT OF BUSINESS There are many things you can do to help cease this production of puppies in dreadful circumstances: 1. Ask before you buy from a pet shop If you do chose to purchase from a pet shop, ensure you ask the pet store owner for photos of their mother and father and also ask for address of the owners. If these puppies are not from a puppy factory, pet stores should be able to produce the above and give you the opportunity to visit their original home. 2. Make adoption your first option
STOP! Have you ever thought where these puppies are from? Who their mother and father are and where they spend their days? Have you ever heard of puppy factories? The desire for breeds, such as the one spoken about in the story, is on an increase. It may be hard to resist the urge to buy these puppies from a pet shop but I will take you for a closer look into how these stores actually obtain animals and why the high price that consumers pay for “that doggie in the window” does not justify the cost paid by animals who are sold in pet shops or forced to produce them.
There are many organizations across Australia dedicated to looking after homeless pets and ensuring they are given a second and sometimes third chance in life. By adopting a pet from a rescue group or shelter, you are not only saving a life, but you are also helping pledge your support against puppy factories. http://www.petrescue.com.au
