The idea is that he is last to get off and if that isn't possible, he should remain on board to get as many off as possible. Unlike passengers, he has the training and ability to save more lives than anybody else. Not to mention that in many cases it was his decisions that got the ship in danger....

I've done a ton of research on this.

If a larger water-cooled version, both Generac and Kohler have go...

The Kohler Command and Command Pro are great engines -- high-quality and include better bearings, hydraulic lifters, oil coolers, etc. Their Courage (economical) line carried some of these features but had a number of quality issues. That's probably why you are seeing the "7000 series" as they ende...

I don't believe this is related to a local focus on illegal prescription drugs. Heroin has been on the rise nationally in a big way.
