Hello, welcome and good luck!

Only good advice, keep your mouth shut and listen. Those loud mouths are usually the ones who are picked out very easy!

Do as your told, be ther 5 minutes before, dont answer back (even if you are right and the instructor is wrong) Do the best you can and for f**ks sake listen, it will make you a better matelot. Good luck.
 
Don't tamper with the Golden Rivet, whatever you do, and don't ask what it is either, especially to a Stoker! :twisted:

Congrats, by the way Budgie. Have fun!

Well done Budgie,
All of the above tips are sound. If you think you are fit then train some more, the fitter you are the easier it is. Get someone to teach you how to iron clothes and how to sew.
Realise that everything they do to mess with your head and put you under pressure is to see how you react to stressfull situations, they arent just being sadists :wink:
The more you put in the more you will enjoy the experience, give it your best shot, don't complain or moan and you will do fine. But above all enjoy! Its an experience that will have an influence on you for the rest of your life, and one that few people nowadays can understand or appreciate.

Good Luck :lol:
