It sounds like you haven’t sailed on a workboat in recent days. They are a joke. Wipers think they are chiefs, cooks think they are the first officer because hey are having an affair with the captain.
The majority of the engineers are a joke. I did meet one female academy grad working the night watch. She didn’t know what a coupling was when I went over there to ask for parts. She handed me a union fitting and asked if that was a coupling. Anyone who goes to work there learns from whoever is there…which apparently in most cases is not much!
This, in a nutshell is why you get so much shit here. A lot of people on this forum are ‘workboat’ people. You get off on generalizing the entire industry based on YOUR experience with it. You enjoy the attention and go out of your way to provoke it. So why anyone would sympathizing with you baffles me. If you ever reach maturity, I hope you learn that when you die if all they have to put on your tombstone was that you knew the correct nomenclature and boudreaux didn’t. That means you’ve lead a sad, sad life.
Worry about YOUR own bullshit. There is competency and incompetency everywhere. Now I’m going to take glaugs advice and ignore you. By the way, that can go both ways. You don’t have to start up again anytime your called out.
