Pointing out that someone is a pompous fool who struggles to communicate and dishes out crap information is a tad more constructive than being that fool.

Someone is tired, anyway this "forum banter" between strangers is never going to be as good as the "what happens to the fiancee" thread.

Ta ta guzzler you fart locker bosun.

come on fellow mariners, some of my best opos are wedge technician's.

My only constructive comment to add to this thread was simply that the young specs coming through today had to wait up to 2 years to even get in to phase one, and the chock head branch or what's left of it has always been popular.

And my info on the WAFU world comes from mess mates who work the deck or the hanger rat as you call them on the mighty hoop.

But any fish head who has done a smack 233 course could work the deck.

And your basing this on what exactly? Idle chit chat!

As ex helicopter aircrew I know who my choice would be on when landing on the deck of a small ship. And first choice would not be SMAC 233 rating. No offence but you just ain't quick enough with the lashings etc.

Been there there, done that, nearly crapped my pants!

Hope you don't have any SMAC 233 fish heads, on deck when the F35Bs, are at flying stations on the QE class carrier!!!!!!! As they will soon get to know what it's like to spend time in the scrambling net, some 80 ft above the oggin lol ps.Loved:drool: the fish head that wanted to clip my winch hook, on the guard rail when doing a winchex with HMS Jaguar lol

It happened to me during a HIFR, instead of just holding the hook the moron clipped the winch hook to a deck ring. The saving grace was comms were working and the deck supervisor unclipped it! So dangerous.

I will say that our SMAC 233 guys are better that the US deck crews, now that is brown pants stuff when doing cross-pole ops!

Just to keep things up to date there is no such thing as a SMAC course any more, hasn't been for quite some time, they are now called Air courses, 233 is still relevant though.

An Air 233 qualified rating is ONLY approved to work on single spot flight decks under supervision of the FDO and wouldn't get anywhere near a multi-spot deck, thats why a Naval Airman will do over 6 months training and an Air 233 will do little over a day and a half.

Thx for the update.
