Jim Nelson, PMO Houston/Galveston, is shown giving an award to Captain William L. Miles of the Lykes Discoverer (WGXO). Lykes Discoverer provided our forcasters with 756 weather observations in 2000. This is Captain Miles' second year in a row on two different ships receiving our annual award. When Captain Miles is off, Captain David S. Putty is Master. The National Weather Service and NOAA extend their tanks to both Masters for their great support.
