Wow it really has been 7 years.

A bunch has changed since then. I had another kid. I became a longshoreman. Own a house even!

What’s a longshoreman? Is that one of those dudes that uses a stevedore and swears all the fucking time?
I remember reading about them in one of the Frank McCourt books. They didn’t strike me as the kind of fellas you’d want to trifle with.

Welcome back, btw.

Longshoreman is a stevedore. Dock worker essentially.
It's a union job, and we get all sorts of people. Aaaalllll sorts

Thank you Rors. :)

It'd be a shame of these boxes fell overboard and sank to the bottom.

Oh, I thought stevedores were those hooks you use for gutti...eh, helping each other.

One of my films of the year has been The Irishman.

I’m not fucking with any union guys any time soon.

Oh yes, these

The iconic hook, I think they are commonly called stevedore hooks, so you were not wrong.
They are obselete though. I've never used one or seen one used. Closest i've used is a pike pole I use while working log booms.

Most of our work these days involves container ship operations.
