Hoping to obtain some wisdom from some members who have experience with career crossovers or tugs, particularly wire boats.
I currently work for an OSV company based in the GOM as an AB. Looking to hear some experiences with anyone who has crossed over to tugs and towing from another branch of the industry. Is it a feasible thing to do around say the age of 30 with some years in the 1600 stuff? How accommodating are tug companies to the advancement of hawsepipers? (i.e. training, promotions, etc)
Just trying to get some perspective from people who have been there and done that.
Thanks for your time.
