Re: Mouldy Navy

Well I retired, when I joined TC. No more 16 -18 hour days, every weekend off, sleep in my own bed (which stays in one place!), no vibration, no middle of the night phone calls (CHEEF!! IT's F*******) they give me days off they call "holidays" and I get paid for them! When I get sick, I ge...

Re: Doom and Gloom

The insurance industry will sort it all out. When they find out that whizz kids can't fix shit, the rates will go up, charter rates will fall and ship owners will lose money. That is the ONLY factor which is relevant, profits of ship owners.

Re: RCN looking for Engineers

So, 33 weeks of Engineering training, won't learn very much in that time, these Halifax Class ships are quite complicated. (I was a Trials Engineer at St John Shipbuilding when they were built) I can see why TC doesn't accept RCN Officer's Engineering qualifications. It takes a 4 year College course...
