only 6hours on and then 6 off. Pah when I was a lad....................(no that is hard work)
But to the point we work 12 hours at least shifts every day on a nice boat but if that boat needs something then ya get down and do it until its fixed.
24/7 is just not enough for our firm.. but then again I had a proper nice soft job once were ya just sorta turned up and at the end of the month they paid me -and then gave me money and a nice pension to go away with early retirement.
They pay me more for this one and to be honest I am so glad I was able to get out of the rut and do it, love every minute..... well almost every minute -rough sea, ice on the deck, bl>>>y wheelhouse heater that works so well in summer ya could boil the kettle on it but doesnt do cold weather, clients that think because its calm in their office it must be fine out at sea - yeah ok almost every minute!
Loadsa work out there for qualified skippers who can prove themselves but its a cruel world and jobs can finish in a flash.
Me?- I'm back at base for a few of days so I have courses to run at sea as a bit of relaxation
