Hey everyone. I currently work for a line boat company. They have a path into the wheelhouse to be steered which can be reached in 5 years(if you get lucky enough to be put on a boat where you can reach sr Mate in that time) however i dont want to rest my future on my coworkers leaving/being let go.
After I get my steersman license what would be a better path to go. I do enjoy my job on the deck but if i can reach the wheelhouse faster, why wouldn’t I.
Any tips would be appreciated, thank you!
