First a shout out to everyone that contributes to making this forum informative, entertaining and just downright useful. Many thanks! A little flattery never hurt eh
I’m heading to Seattle next week, to beat the bushes and see what kind of opportunities there are. I’ve already made a list of people to see while I’m there and this forum has been instrumental in building that list. This will be my first visit to Seattle, and I’m interested in any feedback that could be useful. Places to stay short-term, tips about transpo, offices to visit, people to ask for, who’s nice, who’s not so nice, great food, coffee, etc…
So far the plan looks like this:
Stay initially at the Green Tortoise Hostel and set up meetings at:
Stabbert Maritime Management
University of Wash
Coastal Transportation Inc
Pacific Maritime Institute
Cruise Terminals of America
Premier Pacific Seafoods Inc
Crawford Nautical School
Fremont Maritime Services
Pacific Marine Center
I realize this is a pretty open-ended request, I’m just looking to hear about Seattle from people who I already have respect and appreciation for via gcaptain.
My focus has been research vessels :rolleyes:, so if you have info regarding that direction terrific! Otherwise, I’m just looking to hear about Seattle from insiders. Thanks to all :D!
