Hi All,

New shipmate here. Name is Andy. I am looking to connect with people on working on a yacht. I was in the US Coast Guard, worked as a Civilian Mariner for Military Sealift Command, and Merchant Marine in the Offshore Oil Industry. I have decided that it is time to get away from the pain and dangers of working commercially. I do not have a problem learning and working hard to get where I want to be, just that watching some of the old "sea-daddys" without fingers and bad attitudes about life was starting to get to me. So, I am taking a new approach to life, work and everything in general. I would like to be surrounded by people who take pride in their jobs, and what they do, and have a chance to grow, and not be held back by someone in an office who has never been to sea.

I will be getting to Fort Lauderdale in the next month as I wrap up life where I am, and taking some schools to add to what I have already. I would like to hear from anyone who can give me a heads up to something that I might need to know or get me ahead in the industry.

Thanks for everyones time,

Fair Seas,

Hi Andy

Are you looking for gainfull employment in the "industry"? Or, wanting to take a "time-out"?
