Just discovered this thread. Interesting range of careers, I particularly like the chippie owner. :th:
Me, now retired for near on 10 years after decades in various production/IT roles in our beloved defence industry, and 5 very enjoyable part time years with a small software development company building web portals to their service management system. Now "meaningfully" employed building model car kits. ;)
Mk 2 n/a, 1993 vintage; had it approaching 5 years and it behaves itself and is a great enjoyment. :)

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

Wow quite a range on here! Surprised to see so many of you offshore folks. Was actually training to be an offshore chemist/lab tech before covid. Just got all my tickets, medical etc. sorted when the lockdown kicked in. Now haven't been able to get a peep out of the chap who arranged it in months. Looks like I may end up going back to being a spectacularly underemployed retail assistant after all... :crybaby:
