We’ll GMDSS went fairly well – the exam was a bit of a let down since everyone says its a really hard course – personally I found it reasonably easy and was a bit disappointed after the exam! Not that I am complaining it means I can return to studying for my Orals which are fast approaching.

I finished GMDSS on saturday and then started PSCRB – thats Proficiency in Survival Craft and Rescue Boats. I don’t expect this course to be particularly hard after all I have plenty of experience of launching and recovering, lifeboats, rescue boats and tenders pretty much every week at sea – but what is shocking is the people on the course who despite having the same sea time as me have never been in a lifeboat in the water!

PSCRB runs until the practical assessment on Friday, then my parents are visiting for the weekend.

Last night I went to see Terminator 4 with some guys from the course, it was reasonably ok although not really a brilliant movie!

Carrying on from last time, if anyone does have any more questions they want to ask, and me to answer about the cadet ship, college or life at sea feel free to add them as a comment to any entry (or send me an email via the contact me link) and I’ll reply at some point.
