August 2007 I posted and asked for some career advice. Everyone here was increadibly helpful. Especially Captain Lee. A special thanks to him for the 1000+ word manual he posted that included a 10 year income forcast for 100 ton and AB to Mate tracks. Unbelivably helpful!
Now, 1 1/2 years later, REC, AB, TWIC, STCW, 50 ton NC and all the other stuff behind me,
I was offered an unlicensed deckhand job with OCEANEERING today and took it. It will be on a <100 ton mini supply doing dive ops on a 4 point anchor spread.
Since I dont have any GOM recency I figure its a great place to get a start. Besides as a past GOM diver at least ill know whats hapening on the boat.
So to everyone a BIG BAYOU THANK YOU for all the great gCaptain help!
