daniel minchew in Jacksonville, Florida said: mrs jean,go to all the websites you can find for deckhands and dont give up keep on keeping on!!!!good luck
Thanks so much ....Ive been a sp,ed. teacher assistant for years and loved it. Trying to break the unions up here so I took my benefits and took a way to early retirement. My brother and nephew were tug boat captains and cant believe I'd do this....Yes I can,..I think I embarrass them. They both worked off the great Lakes. My sister in laws were fill in cooks and had fun so I thought I might give it a try. Not to many tug boats need cooks with microwaves. My friend owns a tug boat company but is on hold because of the unions too. Its a mess up here right now,,,,,Anyway Daniel it was so very nice of you to reply with encouragement. Maybe I can help you out sometime,,,I think people join the unions up here and go to union halls. My brother and nephew get lots of offers they turn down. My friend offered me a o job on his tourboat tug if my brother would be the captain but he declined. My brother is way to protective .
So I guess Ill do some more investigating on my own. Hope you have good luck down your way. Ya my brother has a couple of houses he rents and vactions in Arcadia Fl. Small world huh?
Thanks Alot!! Jeanne
