Any WS S (SM) i could talk too?

From the outside in, that branch is usually one of the more seen off, shitty-jobs-club branches. On top of that its manned by the higher percentage of tards ive seen onboard a boat as it usually requires nil qualifications to join.

My advice would be to investigate other non-WS jobs, but thats just me.

was Stores Accountant in old money, Logistician (Supply Chain) will be in your books. Always confuses me though as im unsure of how i can be a whole supply chain.

Im not immediately saying you need to be an SA, not at all. Most people will prefer their own branches. Id just advise you to err away from being a dabber.

Oasis works in the Logistics branch handling stores, based on his Avatar.

The better jobs on boats in my opinion are:

ETWE(SM) - loads of time in the mess
Writer - claiming for everything on JPA
CISSM - hiding in the shack
SA - mostly on 5th watch
Chef - no one p!sses off the chef
ETME(SM) - again loadsa 5th watch aft
TSM - never works after 10am when alongside
Steward - not expected to know much

Go for SSM only if you must, or if you like getting cold, dirty and scrubbing out.

I was an SA on boats 1966-1977, and found one of the most interesting parts of the job was IDD2 when transmitting active (do they still do this ?), or in quieter periods, listening to ships and marine noises on the 2001 passive. Also learned the difference between 170, 177 and SQS 23 txmissions. Nice break from the endless stocktaking, and "the Chief Tiff wants one of these NOW" - cue piece of oily mangled metal dropped in hand.

One or two, theyre the worst ones when a dabber stitches you up for it :D

As for chief tiffs, i just get "Valve". OK, what kind of valve "err.. relief. brass."

Amazing how nothings changed.
