Yes, got a degree from Naval College in the Netherlands and spent the first eight years of my career in the merchant navy. General cargo, bulk carriers, Ocean going tugs, oil rigs and Anchor handling tugs. Made it all the way to Chief Engineer. We're talking late 70's early 80's. Promotion were quick in those day.

At graduation day your family would be there and reps from all the companies. Your name got called, you would walk up, get your diploma, walk back and before your family had a chance to congratulate you would have several job offers. Those were the days!

Its been a while, but Im still interested in anything that happens in the Merchant Navy.

Didn't expect so many sailors out here!
Nice surprise!
Would be nice if you could point me to the thread where you mentioned about the marine pics.
Would post a few to let fellow members understand the monstrosity and know what difference 200bhp and 20000bhp makes!
