    I want to have a go on a tug boat! I am hoping to get a commercial endorsement on my sailing qualifications, but what training did you have to do to work on one?

    • Viki,
      Im not sure how licensing works in NZ, however to work as a deckhand on a tug in the U.S. you need at the minimum your merchant mariners credential as an ordinary seaman and TWIC (transportation worker identification card). Many companies will also want you to have STCW 95 basic safety training.
      To work as an officer you will need sea time and to pass tests. Depending on the license you test for you may also need to complete a TOAR (towing officers assessment record) to have a towing endorsement added to your license.

    Hey I was wondering about the keithbradleyrc boat you got. I have sent a couple of emails to his website with no reply. I also work in the GOM for Adriatic marine. I have posted on your post on tht and enjoy some of your videos. I have bought my son a rc boat but am looking to get into it myself asi was having as much fun as him. I am wanting a top quality build but dont want to spend the time building myself. Any help you can give on getting in touch with him ?
