Re: how to survive a disaster

I always check the escape routes on planes before I take off, and size up who's in-between me and my closest escape haha

Re: Faculty - Nautical Institute Education, Marine, NSCC

We had a steam course at Marine Institute, besides Thermo steam teachings.

Also, I believe I remember seeing a similar ad last year and they were offering somewhere in the ball park of $80k range, if I recall correctly.
Not bad for picking on little punks all day heh

Re: Seatime requirements

As for sea time; to get your "second engineer officer" CoC you need at least 12 months of sea service on board vessels, other than stationary MOUs, that have a propulsion power of at least 750 kW, while serving in the function of an officer in charge of an engineering watch, a second engin...

Re: BP Recruitment Article-Woman Engineer

China has long been a signed member of the IMO, didn't they have to comply with STCW standards before the Manila convention?

What makes foreign a real job?
Haha I get your tone, but I'm curious what would make that more appealing?

Re: Suicide and sea

I suffered symptoms of what would now be called Post Traumatic Stress for years. No illusions, It is a tough life at Sea. BP Something else kind of relatable; I'm sure we've all had the close call to almost game over moments doing what we do. Over a year ago I had a 'near miss' alright, if my react...

Re: Suicide and sea

Well said BP. I've stood on the transom and watched the surreal display at night, where the luminescence of the wake seems to entice one more step.....just one, into the warm water..,.,.,. but resisted and turned back. I must admit too I've had the same/similar feeling. Now; not to say it was a sui...

Re: TC 2nd Class needed for ex NTCL operations

Haha yeah fair, that's true too.

Crash course in learning and ingenuity though...I improved my skills more than 10 fold in that 3-4 months rather than, say, the previous 2 years aboard a new SUL Laker.

Killabuck didn't look too bad from the outside when I was in Tuk last fall ha, I wasn't inside though.

Re: TC 2nd Class needed for ex NTCL operations

Yeah, I was thinking that too. A slight disconnect from reality. Incidentally, i have just published my latest blog post with wages standards for Marine Engineers in Canada. http://www.dieselduck.info/blog/ I feel like this should be a separate thread to itself. I imagine there could be a lots of d...

Re: STCW10 (Manila Convention) comes into force Jan 1 2017

Any Kid who started a Cadet Program in 2009, and graduated in 2013 (for example) and has 36 months of sea time as 4th, 3rd and or 2nd (you don't have to go through the ranks any more) is entitled to the highest license there is. They don't even have to do any TC exams other than 4th's (if they stil...

Re: STCW10 (Manila Convention) comes into force Jan 1 2017

Yeah, I finally read the thing carefully. And while the new MPRs and TP8911 aren't written yet, I've got a good idea of what is going to be required and what's going to happen. Once they're finalized and approved, that's when it'll all be in force - yes. You're estimating spring 2018-ish? And until ...
