Pros: Supplied Food, Comradery, Experiences
Cons: Poor Attitude
A typical day on the ship consisted of breaking down rust spots, priming, painting and general maintenance. During my time on the ship, i learned supervisor skills, paint and preservation, small boat operations, unrep and conrep operations, anchoring operations, and ship handling. Management, it was acceptable. My co-workers were hardworking, and looked out for each other. The hardest part of the job was being forced to go home when a project was almost finished. The most enjoyable part of the job was my co-workers, they made the ship life much more enjoyable.
