Off the coast of Honolulu
The anticipation of arrival in Honolulu is palpable and everyone onboard is excited! With the scheduled crew change of personnel, our number 10 boat makes its way towards Honolulu harbor.
One of the processes used to track work requests aboard the TSGB is known as the AVO system - short for “Avoid Verbal Orders”. This simplistic and practical function keeps requests organized so that engineers can manage the workflow efficiently. Whether it is fixing a laundry machine, unclogging toilets, or adding new tool racks into workspaces, the AVO system keeps track of everything.
