Hi guys and gals.

Ok, One of the people who is providing me with a reference is a master with a ferry company. He has organised for me to spend the day on the ferry very soon.

I am going to put together some questions, are their any key ones I should be asking? I won't be gaining a cadetship with the company because the agency has already said no, so that is not an issue. Hopefully he should have some cadets on board, so I can pick their brains as well.

Just looking for general advice, I have little experience with ships and as such is making my application look quite weak when I am applying to companies. I am hoping this will strengthen it a wee bit!
