Marine engineer SUB VS SURFACE

Discussion in 'Joining Up - Royal Navy Recruiting' started by P-38, Dec 31, 2008.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Can anyone tell me why I should pick one over the other?

    what are the pros & cons of submarines and ships?

    How much harder is sub training?

    Does anyone know the waiting times?
  2. Why? If you can't make up your own mind then it isn't the job for you ;)
  3. I think you misunderstand the question. I'm applying for Marine engineer because I find it to be a very interesting trade. I was simply asking which platform (sub or ship) for "marine engineer" is more rewarding. :thumright:
  4. Erm, well obviously if you are a submariner then submarine work is more rewarding, but if you are a skimmer then ship work is more rewarding.
    FFS go with skimmer first, see a bit of the world (well, the gulf) THEN if you fancy a change of direction go submariner, but most of all, MAKE YOUR OWN MIND UP.
  5. They are both rewarding. If you want the bet travel options then surface will give you that. If you want more money and the potential for getting in to the nuclear industry then Subs. Waiting time for subs is a little shorter, so you would be in quicker that way as well

    Hope this helps
