I have a mariner staying here for 2 weeks, right now, taking the Celestial Navigation class at RelyOnNutec and he happens to be someone I helped get a job in 2014. Nice to see return mariners and keep up with their progress.

I agree AHTS Master. It has only just begun!! But, it is looking better and better everyday. Almost all of the companies are hiring all positions. It’s advertised, daily. Time will tell, but many are optimistic, here.

There is a big difference between running ads every week for all positions with a discounted bulk ad buy, and actually hiring a significant number of people in all positions.

As far as Tugboat jobs outside the Gulf go, there is nice uptick. Improved business conditions and retirements seem to be driving it.

Harvey is hiring as many qualified people as they can right now. This I know for a fact.

The guys who keep quitting Harvey are going to other companies so they are hiring just as much.

Lot of boats coming out of stack that need crews.

That is my understanding, also, Jemplayer. I can only share the good news. Lots happening down here on the bayou. I had a mariner stay at my B&B about a month, ago, that got hired with Harvey Gulf. He was a mariner that got a job with ECO many years, back, when he stayed here. He worked himself all the way to an Unlimited Master. Another 3rd Mate Unlimited stayed here a few weeks, back and got hired at ECO as an AB. Again, if I can be of help to any of you, I still offer a discounted rate of $75/night to mariners looking for work and/or taking classes in the area at Faulk Safety, now called RelyOnNutec or Marine Training Institute (DP Classes) all in Houma, LA. A mariner that is staying here now taking Celestial Navigation at RelyOnNutec in Houma told me the classes are all filled with people taking many different classes.

If anyone is looking to take celestial, I would highly recommend taking the course with Bill at falck (now called RelyOn Nutec) in Houma. Excellent instructor. I believe they have a class coming up in June. I also had the opportunity to stay with Miss Claudette @A_Chateau_on_the_Bay. I had stayed at her BB in 2014 while looking for work on OSVs. I have since moved on from OSVs but remembered her great deal she offers for mariners in the area looking for work or taking classes. Brought back some good memories. Top notch experience all around.

Interesting Story, this week, at A Chateau on the Bayou B&B!

Academy Grad checks in on Sunday afternoon, May 19, 2019.
Ms. Claudette falls on the cement, that night, and breaks her kneecap and can’t get up.
Academy Grad graciously carries her to the car and brings her to the ER at 9:00pm.
He waits with her till 2:00am before getting to see the Physician Assistant.
He leaves around 2:30 am to get a couple of hours of sleep before going to interview for a job early Monday morning.
GETS HIRED, passes his physical, and starts classes. YEAH!!!
All, I could say was, Thank God he got a job!
No one could make up this story. Now I am in a wheelchair and walker still operating my B&B and welcoming more mariners to come down when looking for a job.

Also, two weeks, ago, another Maritime Academy Grad was hired with a great company, as well.

As always, if I can be of help to any of you in providing nice, affordable accommodations, I still offer a discounted rate of $75/night to mariners looking for work and/or taking classes in the area at Faulk Safety, now called Rely On Nutec in Houma, or the Marine Training Institute (DP Classes) in Gray, LA.

Great News this Week!
Another Maritime graduate checked in on Sunday; coming down looking for a 3rd assistant engineer job.
He realized he had to take a risk because it was not going to happen by calling or emailing.
He got hired the first day, took his physical, and began taking classes this week.

So keep in mind, that if you are looking for a job, you will have to come on down to the bayou and sell yourself!
