Good evening Steamer, was curious if you had any recommendation for study material for the 1st/Chief exam? Once I get back from my next shipping job I will have enough time to test and would like to study while I'm at sea to prepare for it. Thanks for your input, EWR.
I am impressed with your resume' and a number of your posts.
I tend to get a little worked up now and then. Appreciate your questions. I will try and get hold of the USCG "hot list" of countries that are lax on enforcement to buttress my arguments. It is out there, I am just not sure if it is for consumption outside their community.
I noticed Hawsepiper and CMES. Excuse my ignorance but what is CMES?

Mellow out a bit Chief, you act as if you are being attacked personally and that is not what this forum is about. The only thing I mentioned was the three watch system nothing else. I work for the EPA on the BOLD occasionally and though it is a federally owned vessel, we run the boat legally on long runs and maintain a three watch system even in near coastal waters....The snipes do too.............
Question for you, I'm in the seattle area and looking to achieve my chief engineer license. I have 20 years experience on crab boats in AK and have been the engineer for the last seven to eight years. Where would be the place to test for the marine engineer licenses?
