I was a mechanical engineer myself (now turned to IT) and happened to work in Cochin Port Trust harbour workshops as an apprentice. Came across a lot of fellow mech engineers aspiring for marine careers, and they all had one motive: Travel the world and being paid for it. BTW, seeing those marine engines was hell of an experience ! I used to stand in front of that monster of an engine with jaw-dropping awe.

Pics (from inside the ship, if you can) will be highly appreciated.
I graduated as a Mechanical engineer but went on to do Marine engineering as well. I have sailed across the 'seven sea' (sorry about the cliche!). But lately I am doing more.
And yes, I love working with engines and machines. I have a green thumb for anything mechanical.
