Furloughed bar tender looking to become an engineer. Probably float some site labouring alongside to bridge the gap now I'm the proud owner of a Mk2 Rev2 MR2. Bright red for those interested in colour.

I've just retired after 31 years working offshore, Chief Electrician on a Semi Submersible drilling rig. Mostly North Sea, apart from 18 months in the G.O.M.

I have a chief mate licence. Worked on DP semi subs and drillships in Brazil. Stopped working at sea in 2016. Just didn't seem to be any jobs in the offshore industry. Andy
Now working last 3yrs as a Deputy Commissioner of Maritime Affairs for the Republic of the Marshall Islands.

See sig for latest fleet of Mr2's. Mainly been driving the 2gr mk3 last 10yrs!

If your still enjoying it, I'd say stay on. :th:
I only retired last year just shy of my 69th birthday. If it hadn't been for Covid and the slump in oil prices I might have still been there. If nothing else it keeps you active and the old grey matter ticking over :cool1:
