    Hmmm, I really must review our smiley collection. Far too many odd ones you keep dragging up.

    I would just like to give tlloyd a big thumbs up, this kind of attitude is what the MN needs, IMHO. Other people would do well to take a leaf out of his book.
    Old person rant over

    Haha, no, you just get on with it. Another day, another Renminbi. It's only 6 hours port watch after all. Then 12 hours sailing to Ningbo, then you start it all over again. Then you sail to Yantian, do it all over again. Then Hong Kong, then you do it all over again, then Singapore, you do it all again, then Tanjung Pelepas, do it all again. Asia=Madness. People think visiting ports must be the nicest part of the job at sea. It isn't. The nicest part is the ocean passage.

One O/S, one Cadet and one Officer. Oh, the Anti-Heeling Pump is being serviced, so you have to pump manually between the heeling tanks. Challenging aint the word!
    Was that one of those moments where you just look at the unfolding situation through narrowed eyes thinking 'no, surely not... I MUST be hallucinating...'

    Your bold points noted. Contribution appreciated. Companies are mostly non-UK companies, who will hire British personnel. Container ships are my target, have tried bulk, but feel at home at the moment with box ships.
    Ach, boring! No challenge to them! Go for tankers...

    Part of my problem is that I am still awaiting my CoC in the post, I sent off for it only a couple of weeks ago, despite qualifying in early Dec. Once I have that there are several online application forms I can finish filling out. Plus, most of my experience is cruise ship, which I'm not massively keen on going back to, but it does mean that people with cargo ship experience will be more likely to get a job that they and I apply to... Once I have my CoC I can finally get my Viking Recruitment form finished off, and the Maersk one too and hopefully after that things will start happing a bit quicker!

    tlloyd, would you feel like being very kind and sending me that list?? Pwetty pwease?

    Or are you just picky?
    You just got to know where to look. I have 5 companies on my list for after I qualify if I don't get offered a place, all hiring Junior UK deckies. As for engineers, there are tons of jobs available.
