I'm not surprised, especially around jock land. The Hebrides from what I hear aren't the smoothest of waters.Precisely that.
I was a Stores POMEM(M) on Hurworth, my opposite number, the Engine Room POMEM(M) used to feel a bit 'icky every time the ship left the harbour. He used to sit on watch with a bucket on a rope round his neck to catch the dockyard pizzas
Obviously not everyone feels it as much as others, but small ships do wobble a bit at times.
In your opinion, would I be better off going for another branch if I want to literally travel the world? I was interested in both WS and Seaman spec. But for some reason the whole 'mine warfare' thing attracted me and I'd heard that they do seamanship and warfare roles but on a smaller scale.
If I'm honest they're the only roles that attract me, as well as diver but my phys isn't good enough at the moment, though I've got another three years till I join. MA would be a good idea to develop first aid skills I've already got, but not sure if it's the job for me.
