Hey MM. Like your post about oilfield workers finding long haul trucking jobs. Unfortunately, some of the posters are vile, perverted people.

Won't be much longer... total bomb out by February' s end..the market is primed for major correction.. My gut tells me a 3000 point drop is coming, but 5000 might be the target.. where's the wealth? Who has it? And what's it really worth? We shall soon find out. I vote for clean water,air,and tillible soil. Best joe

Thanks for the info Mastermariner, good to know. I posted a similar article a few days ago that said this about booking rates for takers: "The shipping lists indicate the trading firms have been able to hire the VLCCs for less than $40,000 a day - well below spot rates of between $60,000 to $70,000 a day. Average earnings reached $97,000 a day in December - the highest in years - and had so far put off many oil traders. The lower rate has been possible to arrange, brokers said, by agreeing to take some older and less fuel-efficient vessels for up to 12 months." That's where I got the $60-90 figure, which surprised me because I've also heard of tankers going for less than $20k, but of course the market is real cyclical. I know Jones Act tankers have been going for $120-$160 in the past year, but they wouldn't be chartered for storage.
