Hello all, I know this topic is generally a dead horse in these parts, but I hope my questions have enough uniqueness to warrant your help/attention.
I’m thinking of joining MMP and am hoping for some info to help me decide before I make the plunge. I have my Chief Mate Unlimited and my Tankerman PIC. Experience thus far is as a junior mate on coastal tankers, though I was a cadet on an MLL container ship so I have a vague idea of how those operate.
What’s the ballpark income from the various contracts through MMP?
I live in Maine. Is the Boston hall worth my time or should I go straight to New York (or elsewhere)?
How tough is is for an applicant with my sort of credentials to find work?
What’re your recommendations for finding a place to stay near halls while looking for work? (excluding the obvious staying with friends and family)
Thank you for your time and responses.
