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 trade. You will find the "site navigation" menu at the top, and a "about the site" menu at the bottom. Enjoy your stay, feel free to contact me.

Martin - Marine Engineer and Webmaster


Feature -  There are alot of things happening, just not on the main website. Major changes are happening in our industry, especially with workforce and regulatory matters, in particular with Canada. As well, I am going through some major changes "on shore" so the website, my hobby, suffers as usual; this hobby is now into it's 20th year of being online. Over the course of the last 1000 days Martin’s Marine Engineering Page served up nearly 20 million web pages, with over 48 million hits, and nearly 4.2 terabytes of traffic! I am blown away by those figure, all that, from a little laptop on a bouncy ship at sea, with spotty internet.


In this Update - You can check out available jobs on The Common Rail, not to mention all the news and updates from the Marine Personel Regulations (MPR2019) changes in the works. I hope to return to active blogging The Monitor, in the near future, so not much new there, but lots to explore nonetheless. With the nature of my schedule, my twitter account, @dieselduckster, is where I cheer all maritime matters, especially human matters.
