As of last week I desided to take the plunge in to the Maritime Industry. I recieved my TWIC today and already passed my physical and drug test. Tomorrow I ship my package off to the Coast Guard to obtain my Z-Card.
I currently live in Virginia Beach and have been searching the net for as much info as I could get in regards to jobs as a OS deckhand on Tugs or anything similiar.
I am willing to travel as needed and I’m looking for fulltime work. I’m 32 years old and although I’m getting a late start in this industry I hear things will be picking up in the near future.
Any suggestions or information for a new Mariner would be greatly appreciated.
