Hi, Dave here, I am an ex navy MM, and I’ve been sailing MSC for about 5 years now. laid up with a broken leg from too much shore leave. With a wife and new baby, I think i want to get away from deployments. What is the QMED work like in the GOM? I’m used to 4/8, with overtime, clearing 77k last year. I know the rules change for every type of ship out there, but is there a lot of repair work going on? Are they perm. fixes, or just “get-home” jobs. Is there a company shop, or does the pierside work get farmed out?
I have a QMED-Any with STCW. Do many of the ships have a workshop, or just a Vidmar with some hand tools?
I know there will be as many stories and ideas as there are people here. I’m looking for thoughts. Also, any companies out there looking for QMEDs?
Thanks a lot!!
