waikiore 321 Posted July 14, 2021 Share Posted July 14, 2021 Having always worked in the Auckland based marine industry, I wish to refute Foggs claims but find that I can not. In fact personal experience backs them up, and further to that having worked for some of these larger operators I am shocked how little time or effort was put into technical or on the job training, these are the same ones (people) working on the superyachts, luckily many of the superyacht 'engineers' these days only seem to know how to pick up a phone. Back when I started all marine companies-be they chandlers sailmakers riggers engineers had a system of putting the newbies under the wing of an experienced hand, a sort of pastoral care if you like, this had two benefits - training on the job and avoiding cock ups for the company. It seems this approach has been thrown out of late and first week employees are being sent to multi million dollar vessels to guess their way through jobs, whilst being billed out as top barristers! 1 1 1 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
