The Matt Sodnicar Podcast

What does it take to captain an 860 foot long, 150 foot high drill ship in 11,000 feet of ocean? Christine Hafen did it, for years.

Show Notes

I sit down with Christine Hafen to talk about her life on the sea, spanning being a ship's captain, chief mate, and dynamic positioning operator for a drill ship.  This thing is 860 feet long, 150 tall and operates 200 miles offshore in 11,000 feet of ocean - which she has to keep over the drill site in less than 5% variance.  She also tells the tale of nearly going into Davy Jones locker, evacuating during a hurricane.

We recorded this episode because Christine is facing what many of us are this year - a career change.  How does one go from the drill ship to corporate America?
