Captain Alwin Landry’s Deepwater Horizon Rescue Story

Thanks to my good friend and Messing About In Ships podcasting partner, Captain John Konrad, the founder of gCaptain.com, I had the opportunity to interview Captain Alwin Landry, the master of Tidewater Marine’s OSV Damon Bankston, the first vessel to respond to the Deepwater Horizon explosion and fire. Captain Landry and his courageous crew rescued all 115 survivors of the fateful oil rig’s crew. Here’s his story from Weekly Leader podcast episode 68.
