Just read this on the MM&P newsletter, too bad you need pilotage.

with pilotage, engineers, QMEDS and able-bodied seamen. Retirees are
also encouraged to apply for these jobs. The rules of the MM&P
Pension Plan allow*pensioners to accept without penalty
employment--other than Covered Employment--aboard vessels covered by
collective bargaining agreements with MM&P membership groups, on
condition that the employment is first approved by the Organization.
