Welcome to the web site for professional Marine Engineers worldwide. Online since 1999, we have been providing information and resource to professionals and novices, in the maritime world.
I welcome you to discover what marine engineers do, and explore their important role in worldwide commercial shipping, which moves 90% of the world's goods. You will find the "site navigation" menu at the top, and a "about the site" menu at the bottom. Enjoy your stay and feel free to contact me.

Martin - Marine Engineer and Webmaster

In this Update - This past November 20th, 2014, Martin's Marine Engineering Page - www.dieselduck.net, turned 15 years old. Wow, what a ride its been, thanks for sharing it with me. Keeping the website up and running smoothly has been a bit of a challenge these days; the website is basic, but still needs quite a bit of maintenance, just like any ship. A great deal of my recent time off at home, has been spent upgrading and tweaking back office software, which has proven to be quite challenging.
In particular, a major upgrade to the forum area, The Common Rail, was overdue and is taking longer to work out the bugs than I anticipated. We have some great new features available, and the electornic board is fast and safe, unfortunatey I am having challenges with signing on as new users, and some related user inititated customizing. I am working through the problem and hope to have a solution soon. Thanks for your patience!

Feature - Sorry, no interesting features in this update. Its been a super busy year for me on many levels. Work has been particulary unpredictable and its been hard to carve out time to work on the website with any regularity. This year, I also undertook numerous career related projects that have eaten up a great of time.
I will be out to sea this year for the holidays, working in Newfoundland, hope you all stay safe and warm. Happy Holidays ! Feel free to send me an emails / pictures. I love to connect with peers, hear what matters to you, and see what you are doing during the Christmas season, where ever you are in the world.
