      It would have to be enough to cover the cost of seasickness pills.

              It’s a pretty good number if you happen to live near Aberdoom, if not it could end up being 16 days on and 12 days off if you count days travelling.

                Fairly OK for the Scots... Can get to Aberdeen in a few hours from pretty much anywhere. (3 hours drive from Glasgow max) - although that would involve leaving your car in Aberdeen

                  Yeah, it’s not too bad if you live in Scotlandshire, but anywhere south of Newcastle would be a hell of a trek every two weeks. Leaving your car in Aberdeen shouldn’t be an issue, being a ro-ro there is a pretty big carpark on the berth.

                      Unless the safe manning requires an ETO then the role doesn't actually need to be filled by an ETO and as there's not that many people with an ETO CoC currently what has become common is to employ someone in the sprit of an ETO, call them something slightly different and avoid needing any qualification at all. Its all a little untidy and could have been helped if they had allowed people who have been sailing in the role a grandfather clause to get the ticket.

                      However if they don't have the ticket then they need to be employed as something else and signed on as the same.

                      I did some time on a Roro as a cadet it was a night sailing across Biscay and wasn't too bad a gig, in port without the engines for day work, stand by after dinner and then head to the cabin for the sailing get up breakfast, standby and into port. given the Chief tended to be a bit careful about pulling anything big apart just before you were going to sail it was pretty good.

                            Trying to fly into/out of Scotland in winter is always risky - not because the Scottish airports tend to be closed (although it happens) but because flights to/from Scotland are usually the first to be culled by the airlines.

                            I've became an expert on alternative ways home from Heathrow airport since it happens to me every bloody year.

                              And I doubt the employer would stretch to a flight. I think a train or bus is more likely
