Enjoy the site, lot of really good info here. I retired last year after 20 years in the Navy. Last 3-4years of which was on 180ft Cyclone class Patrol Coastal’s. Currently finishing up what I hope is the last of the loose ends with the Coast Guard on my 1600ton Master NC and Master of towing endorsement. Been working in Virginia as a deck hand for a large east coast towing firm on an inland pushboat for the last year (struggling financially of course) and looking forward to getting back into the wheelhouse again. Looking to make as much as I can while balancing home life. Sounds like from previous posts that the oil patch is the place to go. True? What other options are there? Not looking for long hitches.
Thanks in advance.
