I recently posted about a job I was offered with NY Waterway, although I have not heard about pay yet everywhere I have read or talked to seem to lead me to believe it’s nto going to be enough for me to meet my current financial obligations (rent and bills and food)
Anyway, I was an Engineman in the US Navy, I was converted from Machinist Mate which I went to school for. I never went to sea and only worked shore side for about 2 years. I was later given an general under honorable discharge 2 years early because I was with someone who got a DUI but I was also pretty fried and they were doing an RIF, long story I got out without formally being charged, didn’t really realize what I was giving up.
Fast forward to today I have been in the marine world around yachts, dockside managing a successful marine bussiness and I really want to go back to sea.
My question is, do all tugs have engineers, am I screwing myself out of jobs if I were to persue an engineering career over deck.
