Well, I had another successful summer commercial fishing in Alaska. We had a beautiful summer and I spent a lot of time with friends and family. I got to catch waves right up unto the day I left. I will miss all of my friends and family up there. I will be posting more often now that i am back at school and in front of my keyboard more often.

so our first trip was awesome. we caught nearly 26,000 pounds of cod! it was a typical shakedown trip with an incredible catch. We set our gear as the swells built and by the time we had all of our gear set the sea had come up. everything was soaked the decks where leaking badly and we were getting thrown around by the sea. whilst we where securing the decks and getting the boat ready to ride out the night the captain called to us. the ram for the rudder had broke loose of its mount and was washing back and forth with the swells. we had to act fast to secure the ram and gain control of the rudder. to do this we put the boat in gear to help the rudder track behind the boat after a few attempts we got it secured. the next day the ocean laid down a bit and we hauled back our gear. we really landed on them.

I just got back from our first fishing trip of the season. this season is getting off to a really good start. we have a really good crew and our first trip went well. we where faced with some technical difficulties and some foul weather, but we survived the trip and returned to port deck-loaded with fish. We caught nearly double the amount of fish that we usually do and filled our fish hold till it could hold no more. It was an absolutely amazing!

So i have been coming up with some ideas for my final project this week. i think that i will be doing a project involving dynamics. i have been working with the snow/hail for a possible short animation. i have also been experimenting with dominoes and trying different dynamics.

Quote from Forrest Gump By Lt. Dan:That's what all these cripples down at the VA talk about: Jesus this and Jesus that. They even had a priest come and talk to me. He said God is listening and if I found Jesus, I'd get to walk beside him in the kingdom of Heaven. Did you hear what I said? WALK beside him in the kingdom of Heaven! Well kiss my crippled ass. God is listening? What a crock of shit.
Anyway we have been working with Lt. dan rig. I turned off his tail and find it ironic that Lt.. dan has legs and no arms unlike the movie character from forest gump. I mostly just got his character set worked out today. I got that all worked out and saved it so that i have a good copy to work from incase something irreversible happens. I also worked a bit with animating the Lt. Dan rig but didn't get to far.
maybe next class I can get more animating done.
