Able Seaman / Deckhand / Quartermaster (Former Employee) –  Victoria, BC4 May 2012
When I was working for the Canadian Coast Guard I was working as a able seaman deckhand quartermaster on board three ships. The typical days work was handling the mooring lines peparture,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 of 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 oceanenographers lower their equipment from the ships deck to the ocean floor for ocean water temperatures at differant 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 onboard the stearen of the ship
Pros
good working conditions
Cons
working split shifts
