I wanted/have gone for marine engineering... I have some knowledge of engineering and think it would be a great trade to have after coming back.. I'm starting to get this pictue that i'll be stuck below not getting to see much and being stuck below ship not getting any action when time comes just fixing and fixing...? I'd much prefer working on top, so i was thinking seaman specialist would be amazing, i only really want to work with the surface fleet, but i read there's a much bigger waiting list for SS so that's put me off. I guess it's either working for a career after or working to enjoy myself :s I have a really nooby question too... Are [SM] the only one's that get to go on submarines?
