I'm a 4th class engineer preparing to relocate to Shelburne, NS in March/April 2009, presently working as a third on ro-ro ferries on the west coast (5 years here). I will have my 3rd class shortly, and hopefully my 2nd before I leave (seatime permitting). What we really lack here are the publications I found so easily available for work/recruitment while I was cadet on the Great Lakes.
Hopefully this is where some of you can help....
Any insights into the industry on the East coast would be greatly appreciated, with info on recruiters or prospects. I am interested in anything up to month out/month in and possibly shore work (shipyard or plant maintenance). I have no preference to vessel type, and would consider up to 1 hr. commute for shore based work( Barrington or Yarmouth??)
If anyone can help guide me in this, I would be grateful.
Thanks in advance.
