Re: RCN looking for Engineers

The funny thing is a couple years ago I applied to the RCN. I released from the Navy in 2005 so I figured I was within the 10 year window where if I re enlisted I could bypass basic training, etc. I heard they were desperate for engineers and I thought I might as well rejoin and work towards a pensi...

Re: Atlantic Towing looking for full crew

They needed me to go to Newfoundland and run 110v power and internet cables through their new purchase the RAVEN. The C...

Re: TC 4th Class for McKeil

Have to say, I started working for Mckeil Marine last November. So far the experience has been great. I currently sail on an older tug so Obviously I came on wanting to change and spruce up some things. And for me the office, support I have received has been good. Coming from the Lakes back to a tug...

Re: Overspeed Issues

The first thing I thought was the Governor, sort of a mechanical fighting the electronic signal thing. Until I started to dig a little deeper in the history.

Re: Overspeed Issues

OK, Just an Update... Turns out it was the controller. After setting the SELCO M2500 back to %115 Over speed the display and CPU confirmed that the setting was saved and applied, but using a Photo Tach I noticed it was Over speeding way too soon. We then decided to pull the main fuses for the Genera...

Re: Cabin Inspection

Again, We are not arguing the need for need for the Master to conduct rounds. We all know this is a necessary process. The discussion was if the Master has the right to enter a Private Quarters without the knowledge of that Crew Member who resides there... Even the Master on this vessel admits that ...

Re: Cabin Inspection

I am not arguing the Masters right to search the ship. But the Canadian Marine Act states that any representative of the Canadian Government, ( Captain Via Transport Canada, and Chief in the Captains Absence) Has the authority to search his vessel and private quarters with the assistance of the crew...

Re: EMD trainer in Malaysia, short contracts

I know Jolly Jack, and I am proud of my ticket. I worked my way up from Oiler, and built a good working relationship and good reputation with many companies.
