Martin - Marine Engineer and Webmaster

Feature -  Mari-Tech 2018, the annual Marine Engineering Technical Conference and Exhibition of the Canadian Institute of Marine Engineering (CIMarE), held in Victoria this past April was a great success, and I was happy to meet many of you in person, thanks for reaching out - check out some of the pictures and presentations at
Major new development in the Canadian Marine Engineering certification process are underway; Transport Canada has been very active, and has released an outlook of its plans. Rarely does a topic raise so much discussion from peers; you can view some of it on The Monitor and The Common Rail.

In this Update - Not much new here, as I have started a new adventure and I am winding down from Mari-Tech. As the initial period of adjustments settles down, I will post new material.
