Well, It has finally happened. Yesterday,July 5th, pretty much all Ms and La waters have been closed to saltwater fishing w/ the exception of waters "inside". I guess we will fish the rivers and hope some trout came inside before the oil got them. I so mad, I don't even have the drive to fish anymore. The well ain't even capped off yet, so this will be going on for years probably. Wait til fall when the ducks come, they'll die soon as they hit the water prolly..UUGGGHHHHH

well i always wanted a bay boat for cheap. Friend of mine back home said on the 4th you should have seen all the dang salt water boats in the lake back. he said there was even 4 or 5 highperformance baja's or scarabs zooming around.. This lake aint that deep either. If one of them big beast hit a stump its all over.

Wonder if we can file a grievance with BS (BP + US =BS) they will give my saltwater license $ back? Heard a rumor that if you purchased a saltwater boat recently ,even for recreation, that they would pay off the loan.

This ain't no %#\!, but a friend of mine has filed a claim stating he can't use his boat because of spill and wants them to pay for his loss of use, insurance, license, and registration. He has a claim number too.
Another person had his boat for sale at the time of spill and filed a claim stating he could not sale now b/c of spill. They have paid him off for his boat and he still owns the boat.

Yep. I was smart and bought my MS Saltwater license on the 3rd of July. Now I can't even use the Damn thing. Maybe I can file a claim. I want to be on the band wagon.

This is going to cost all of us more than loss of recreation. This will affect the food chain from the gulf to the North Atlantic. I don't want shrimp from Taiwan.

The oil is still a flowing. I guess we gonna turn the Gulf into a holding tank for oil now. I really think they could stop it if they wanted. Fishing industry will be hurt for years.

What makes you think they dont want to stop it????? They are spending about 43.7 million dollars a day for cleanup and drilling relief wells...

My guess would be that the first 2 relief wells will not work, so they will drill 2 more and they may or may not work as well. Now once the Government finds out the scheme, they'll stop the first from flowing open and then have anywhere from 3-11 new wells ready for pumping. Just my theory and mine alone, but u know this well could be plugged if they wanted to bad enough. Once they have multiple wells pulling from same pool, they will make an azz load from multiple wells vs one well. Not a game i'd play, but i hope u see my reasoning....... I could be wrong and it won't be the first or last time. JMO.

Sorry but I dont see your reasoning.

Lets do some math...You say they want to wind up with 11 new wells plus the 1st two relief wells so that is 13 wells total....It cost less than 100 million to drill one well so 13+100Million=1.3 billion.

To date they are approaching 4 billion dollars spent on cleanup and trying to not stop the leak. Plus the government is fining them 20 billion more.
20billion+4 billion and counting=24 billion and counting.

IMHO if they wanted 13 holes in the same reservoir they would have just drilled 13 holes....But no oil company will ever drill 13 holes in one reservoir because it takes alot of pressure to push oil from 18000 feet below the mudline then another mile to the surface.....Every hole you punch into the same reservoir lowers that pressure which will lower the amount of oil they could recover.

Now about the two relief wells. The percentage of a relief well stopping a blowout is 100%. That is a pretty good chance that it will work. But wait BP is drilling two of them.
I think the leak will be stopped next month like they say...It will take a lot longer to get the water and beaches clean....However to say that BP is not doing every thing possible to get this leak stopped is just not true.

my math? I was just throwing some numbers around due to the aggravation this spill has caused. I believe it could/should have been stopped by now. They will eventually stop it YES, but when? I just so TO'd with what it has done to the fishing/seafood industry.
