*If I posted this in the wrong forum I apologize .

I am currently seeking a job on a fishing or crabbing boat preferably on the east coast. I am not hoping to be on the Deadliest Catch either. I have basic knowledge about fishing , boats , mechanics , weather , and navigation. I have no licenses but I am looking to study for some USCG certifications. I have spent time at sea but never for commercial work. The longest was 10 days and we were transporting a Bertram boat from Connecticut to New Jersey. I do longlining for MD Blue Crabs for recreational purpose during the summer. Ive been out to the Canyons to fish Tile and Tuna and other charter trips and have never gotten sea sick. I am currently employed and have been at the same job for 15 years but I am seeking a new profession. I am used to manual labor and long work days. I will take any position because I just want to get my foot in the door.
If anyone has a position please contact me at [email protected] or 717-344-26 three 7. Thanks:rolleyes:

You have come to the right forum. There are quite a few commercial guys who post here. Good luck with your venture. Why did it take 10 days to run the Bertram from CT to NJ?

lol no we did some sight seeing but what took the most time was sorting through electrical and fuel problem. the boat was bought from a Russian named Ivan who did not speak english who also said everything worked fine , that was not true. not even the steering on the fly bridge was connected. we also bent a prop dodging a ferry in a canal. most of time was spent in ports but my point was i dont miss home and i cant stay on a boat if needed.

I know, just goofing around. There was a guy named Hotreels who advertised on here looking for a mate, try him.
