    Default Becoming a merchant marine

    Hello Gentlemen,

    I was wondering if you you guys can help me?

    Im considering a career as a merchant marine, looking to make a career change from my current career. First thing is I am 45 years old, what's the reality of me actually getting a job after I acquire my credentials? I do have navy time on the flight deck of an aircraft carrier, I'm in great shape and understand the hours and time involved int he position.

    Thank You!

    Jeffrox my son...you have learned well from the master. He is most pleased!


    Now herr Kojac, what the FUCK does working on the deck of an aircraft carrier have to do with qualifying you for working on a merchant or work vessel and who the eff cares about what "shape" you are in? Is it triangular, oval or are you a rhomboid?

    Hmmm, I do believe Mr Kosar will no longer be answering your questions, c.captain.
