Decided to make a form that new 3rd mates can cut/paste…
I recently graduated ______________________ Academy and am looking for work. Well really, I want you to look for me please. I have very limited ship handling experience but would love to get a 3rd or DPO spot with a drilling company because I like money. I kinda busy cleaning Mom’s basement right now so I have a place to crash following graduation so please send me detailed contact information as well as payscales, training schedules and benefits particulars. Will NOT consider AB jobs so don’t waste my time. I earned my bridge spot through hard work in class and 210 days of seatime on summer cruises. I’d really prefer to start as a DPO at about 900/day if that helps you narrow down my search. And please don’t tell me to use the search function…I know its there but I already told you I’m a little busy.
Thanks, look forward to sailing with you soon,
very funny rigdvr and thanks…I’m just waiting for one of our “ace” pilots to come on here with this one!

[QUOTE=rigdvr;73421]not sure where that came from this morning! We actually have 2 A&M cadets on for their summer cruise. Pretty good kids but they tell stories about classmates like we so often see visiting here…[/QUOTE]
TMA folks are ok except for TMAcadet1…do your current cadets know who that is? Besides I was just being facetious. All school grads aren’t that bad, but the ones that are drive me to apoplexy!
[QUOTE=c.captain;73434]Hey…I’m in my 50’s. Video games when I was young was “pong” and then later came the “atari” with Missile Defence I redismember…after that I’m lucky to even know what PS3 stands for.[/QUOTE]
lol. Space Invaders and Asteroids - Atari 2600 RULES!!!

Hey! Can you take your game system with you onboard??

That’s it…Space Invaders with the little nuclear explosions! Man does that bring back memories of a mispent youth (actually I was already too old for the Atari but my little brothers must have had 20 games for it. I had a 5 speed stingray bike through with a banana seat and a nerf bar in the back (is that the right term…nerf bar?) Man and there were bell bottom jeans and my hair was a massive helmet! I see pictures of myself from the early 70’s and all I see is hair!
As far as games onboard, it is up to the master of course. I wouldn’t have any problem with you gaming as long as you actually slept when off watch. Doze off on the bridge and we’ll see if your X-Box 360 can float!
Go work on a mud boat for starters to learn the ropes and most important upgrade to a second with only 243 sea days, you ole winner you.
Also should have done a commercial cruise on a mud boat, taken dp basic before joining the vessel so you would have 30 days under your belt of dp time, a drill contractor would hire you maybe as a jdpo
