Welcome to the web site for professional Marine Engineers worldwide. Online since 1999, we have been providing information and resource to professionals and novices alike, 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 -  I am very excited to announced a financial gift of $5000 was made to the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) to commemorate Martin's Marine Engineering Page's 20th anniversarry. On November 19, 1999, I first uploaded the website, and it has been online and improving ever since. Much has changed, and it is easier than ever to find information on marine matters. I am still fascinated by ships and the industry, and continue to learn every day, and hopefully share with you, so we may all be just a little better professionals. Along the way I know I have helped many, and one in particular, felt the need to express what this website has meant to him, by providing a generous cash donation. You can read about this generous gift on my blog, The Monitor, and I send out a big "Thank You" to our donor!

In this Update - Many new articles of interest to Marine Engineers have been uploaded. Check out the What's New area, for a list all the new items. You can check out our forum, The Common Rail, for available jobs, troubleshoot engines and purifiers problems, among other topics. The Monitor is my blog; and my twitter account, @dieselduckster, is where I cheer all maritime matters, especially human matters.
