A fun ship to work on board Able Seaman Seaman / Deckhand / Quartermaster

(Former Employee)

Victoria, BC – 4 May 2012 When I was working for the Canadian Coast Guard I was working as an able seaman deckhand quartermaster on board three ships. The typical days work was handling the mooring lines departure,and arrival to Victoria after sea duty. I learned how to steer the ship on course on the ships bridge. I worked well with the ships captain, and his fellow bridge deck officers on watch. I worked well with all the co-workers deckhands. The hardest part of the job was to respect the heavy seas on the Weather Station Papa, and the most enjoyable part of the job was doing all the exterior deck work, helping the oceanographers lower their equipment from the ships deck to the ocean floor for ocean water temperatures at different depths, and do my watch on the bridge as look out, standby,and steering the ship, and keeping in contact with the deck officer on watch to let him know on what other ships that I sighted on the radar screens, and by sight from the flight deck inboard the starred of the ship


Good working conditions

Cons: Working split shifts
