Hello everybody.

11th September 2009, 22:32
Introducing myself.
I hold a FG Master Cert, a double Chief's Cert., and an MBA.
Way overqualified!
Spent the last 5 years to my retirement developing and implementing major automation on 8 of our Company ships (3 cont ships, 3 tankers, 2 bulkers). Minimum of double redundancy, sealed ER, full duplicate data-logging (one set via satellite to HO where 2 watchkeepers monitor the 8 ships 24/7).
Crew now 1 General Manager, 3 Bridgekeepers, 1 Engineer, 1 Electronic Tech/Electrician, 5 GP hands.
The other 80 odd ships will progressively follow.
Nowadays I go fly fishing.
