If you are looking for a shore job with a well known marine fire safety services/chemical company and want to live in the Hampton Roads area, pm me.

It was my job and I’ve moved on. Good bennies and comes with company car, and you work out of a nice facility.

You will need either a degree in an STEM discipline or an engineering license, or both. And a TWIC.

This is a good job for a recent academy grad or anyone with a young family who wants to stay home for awhile.

There is travel but it is seldom for more than a week, and usually just for a day or two.

The company is also looking for a fire tech, with certifications to work on Kidde and other common shipboard systems. I can put you in touch with that manager also.

The pay is very good, competitive and the fire shop was opened recently with all new equipment.

Linblad Expeditions is hiring for a few positions, assistant and chief engineer, third mate. Job looks fun to me.


I saw one of the Nat Geo boats running down the Washington coast. Also saw one in the yard in Alameda. Cool boats and they can go to some pretty interesting places. Downside is you have to deal with tourists and the pay sucks. To each his own.


Pretty funny. I just looked at the Linblad page. Time off for the crew can be spent taking guided walks and hikes etc. Then in the last sentence it said time off in ports- of -call is rare. What a joke.
