Hello together
just to introduce myself
My name is Andreas Schlatterer, 47 by age and I am working in the shipping buisness since 1982. Most time I sailed for Swiss companies (Alpina Reederei, Metrofin, Enzian) on all kind of vessels except passengers. After 5 years at Claus Peter Offen I changed to Hapag Lloyd . I am now a Chief Engineer. Seamanslife changed a lot in this 26 years but I am still happy to be in this kind of Job.
As a family man I enjoy now the system which gives me 1 trip on / 1 trip off and this fully paid, a dream years ago. Okay the good times in the shipping are mostly gone but still it is good (I tried already two times working ashore but.....) For me personally the Bulkertime (12years) was the best.
best regards
