I was Recently discharged from the navy and really want to work on tugs in new York harbor. I worked as a machinest mate but was never stationed on a ship just shore duty so I have no see time. I was wondering what is the process to get an entry level job on a tug boat? My concern is only in getting in with a good company I can give 20 or more years to and retire from. I am currently 26.
I was toldy navy bootcamp takes care of stcw? Any truth to that?
Also I currently work on bard a racing yacht. I have a bunch of Asa certifications. I am assuming they don’t mean anything in the commercial world. Is that true? Thanks!
