A have a question about AB jobs on-board deep-sea ships:
Is it correct that most deep-sea US ships now carry 6 AB’s and that they are divided into 3 watchstanders and 3 dayworkers?
So, do only the dayworkers handle lines or does all the deck force (OS/AB’s) turn out for mooring/unmooring the vessel?
And is it easier to ship out as a watchstander or as a dayworker?
Either SIU or SUP feeback is much appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
