        Who do you work for Dosedmonkey? Is that a research vessel? I fancy a bit of that.

          Its Fishery Patrol/ Logistics and a little bit of Survey. Byron Marine Ltd. however they only really need a 3rd Navigation Officer and 2nd Engineer, everyone else is in the job for the long hual, dead mans boots and all that.

          Theres lots of survey vessel companies though, British Antarctic Survey and NERC are the too obvious ones.

          PS. Only apply to Byron Marine if you don't get sea sick, its like 40 degree rolls are quite common. I mean frequent force 10s down there, like once a month, and then the vessel rolls a lot anyway.

              I'd fit right in then, our standby boat is like a weeble. And they want to put a bigger davit on and swing a daughter craft off it!

                    with the exception of the penguin, it looks a lot like Arctic-Norway

                      Wasn't so lucky a couple of months ago, started as a force 9, thee days later force 12, five days and nights force 12 disappears to something like a force 1 as we entered Falkland Islands, there was some serious underwear cleaning and sleep catching up required when we got alongside! Not too much damaged, although the Chief had large area of carpet burns from when he went sliding around his cabin, the 2nd engineer (chief ticketed) almost got washed overboard when he had to go check a steering gear alarm which is only accessed from on deck, nice cctv footage of him cleaning on over head pipes like a monkey. And myself as 3rd engineer got a small 110V electric shock when up in the funnel and we took a heavier roll! 43 degrees over was the biggest. Exciting, but worse weather seen by the guys who had worked down there for over ten years. Hopefully worst I will ever see too!
