    I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.....

        Nature of the industry, these things sometimes take time. Just wait, I'm sure they'll be through shortly...

          Quite a few of the CMT cadets in my Phase have heard no news about their first trip and have been waiting 4-5 weeks now. Unofficially I've heard people have been told to wait until the end of March until they start contacting CMT..

            6 weeks isn't that long. I knew people who waited about 3 months to get away. But I can sympathise, I was dead eager to get away on my first ship as well. I only had to wait a week, but I was emailing them a month the end of the phase :-). By the looks of their website, they only have 9 offshore vessels, so depending on how many cadets they have on their books, they may not have a lot of space at the moment. They have to prioritise the cadet berths for the people who need seatime to sit their oral examinations, so just be patient. It will happen!

                The motto of the Merchant Navy (unofficial), is 'Be Flexible'.

                I have just had an email cancelling the ship I was supposed to fly out to join tomorrow! It happens sometimes, things change, just relax and go with the flow.

                  Chase them everyday, we have someone who only got 3 months sea time in their first phase where everyone else got about 5 months. Our next and final sea phase lasts 9 months so it's going to tight for him to get the sea time.

                  Chase, chase, chase.
