New user, advanced seamanship info

Wilson123

Newbie
Hello im about to apply for the RN and have got the application form waiting to be filled in, just wondering if anyone has any info about applying for the advanced seamanship role? i know basically what they do from the Navy website and a few leaflets ive recieved from the careers office, but any extra info would be helpfull like whats the job satisfaction like compared to other jobs.

Cheers
 
The beauty of the RN is you can join with next to know knowledge and they will guide you through everything. You don't need to worry about "advanced" anything, get thorugh the basics first. As a technical rate I never cared much for the seaman branch, but if painting, ships husbandry and ropes and wires are your thing you will be more than satisfied. I think most people (in the first couple of years) just do as they are told and soak things up and are too busy having fun with the lads and the banter, the job satisfaction part will come later and it will be what you make it.
Good luck with you bends and hitches.
 
Seaman Specs are sourced from the Warfare branch. I think you have to be passed for killick before you can go down that road. My experience of Warfare ratings is a bunch of thick gits who can't tie a knot between them, and couldn't care less.

A knot is a nautical mile, I believe you refer to bends and hitches! Good afternoon!

A knot is also a generic term for bends and hitches: http://www.tollesburysc.co.uk/Knots/Knots_gallery.htm

Not since NBPCP, Seaman Specialist is now a direct entry branch and, along with seamanship includes Tactical Communications, Fleetwork and Visual Signalling. Also, upperdeck weapon crews I believe will be the AB(SEA)
