I would like some feedback on maritime headhunters. I have viewed a few different websites and saw a wide range in fees. I have an AB Unlimited, Lifeboatman and a 100 ton Master ticket, live in Florida and looking to work in the oilfield. I really don’t have the funds to drive all over South Louisiana and pay for meals and hotels while I am knocking on doors.
My experience to date is limited to Charter Fishing Vessels and deliveries of private vessels in the GOM and Coastal Atlantic. Because my experience is limited, I see more opportunity to focus on sailing as an Ab until I can gain the sea time to upgrade my masters tonnage, possibly a TOAR, ect.
I really don’t care what I do provided I am working, can cook like a champion, just need my foot in the Merchant Marine Door.
I would appreciate any feedback regarding headhunters (good or bad) and if good, possibly a few recommendations to steer me in the right direction.
