Choice of boats

Bosco

Been given my start date for Raleigh and if all goes well and i was to pass and begin phase 2 training do i get to select which boats i wish to serve on?

I'm joining as an ETWE (submariner) on would like to opt for vanguard class but don't know if this is a choice or you just go where the navy wants you?

You can request a preference, but the needs of the Service will always come first.

I asked for a T Boat running out of Guzz, I got an S Boat running out of Faslav, service needs and all that?

When the one skimmer I had was decommissioned I asked for any frigate deploying to the Far East...I got Dolphin and boats:rolleyes:

I've never been a bomber queen crew member. But, some DO like them because of the submarine pay and the ability to (generally) make (very) long term plans.

Horses for courses.

You might get a DASO.

Been trying to find out more about pros and cons of both A boats and V boats. Tried to find a thread on here as don’t want to start another one. Could someone fill me in with some pros and cons (joining as MESM) thanks

Joining a bomber as a Part III nozzer, you may find the initial sleeping arrangements a bit of a stresser.
