[QUOTE=johnny.dollar;182135]This thread is worthless without pictures. TTIWWOP[/QUOTE]
Go find the yachting forums. Some of the girls post their pictures. Quite a few of them anyway. They will talk about working as engineers(qmeds), switching to deck, going shoreside etc.
You will have to find the forums yourself. I think I have already given enough free information on here to ingraedos who dont deserve it.
There wasnt that many of them when I first got into it, but since I left there has been an influx of them…my arrogant side likes to think that my presence in the industry might have had something to with it. I used to walk onto yachts and some stewardesses would be shocked, jaws dropped when they saw me walk in and start doing the work. The ones I talked to, I told them anyone could do it…that the only thing stoping them was their own misconception of what anyone could do. I was actually a little bit famous for a short time in my region (not gcaptain famous) but job offers left and right. Silly me thought I would make more money in the gulf (which turned out not to be true). Anyway, they are out there now. A whole bunch of them. Its a common path stewardess>deckhand>engineer or stewardess>deckhand>engineer>captain.
So there you have it johnny.dollar, if you are single (or unhappily attached) and you want your engineering seatime towards your STCW, go work on a yacht. You will go both your seatime and most likely meet a pretty girl.
