I am James Correu.
I'm wondering if there is anyone going to the Med or to Se Asia/S Pacific that could use another guy along? Currently and in S Florida
, but can easily meet with just a couple hours by plane. This is a more professional cover letter, and paid positions are preferred.
I've worked as 2nd Engineer/Bosun on 142' M/Y, several yard periods, and held a few freelance positions as sole engineer
, most notably on 125' M/Y, where I worked extremely hard for the two months I was with them, and came across a slew of problems that I was able to address. *I have reference letters from her Captain
, and the engineer
that I filled in for. Currently I possess my AEC and am working toward my Y4.
I value preventative maintenance
, and proper log keeping. I enjoy diagnosing problems when they arise, and like to be hands-on and I'm willing to get dirty when fixing them. *Though along with that I also know how to ask questions, do research
, and talk with others who are more knowledgable in the areas that I still have to learn. *
I've always used hand and power tools, I spent half a year during my physics studies working in the departments machine shop, and with welding I have a little experience using a stick welder.
I've dealt with A/C problems on several boats, Headhunter and Hamman black water
repair, rust mitigation and painting, routine engine maintenance
and servicing, log keeping, and working with contractors.
I have a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science. *Though I am no longer a computer programmer I am still more than your average computer user. *I have experience with installation
and troubleshooting of fire and security alarm
systems, CCTV, computers
and bridge electronics
, and general*electrical troubleshooting. Additionally I worked as a control systems engineer designing, building, programming, and running physics experiments.
I enjoy people and am a very sociable guy. *I gain stimulation from an energetic international crew of at least 6 or 7. *I like to remain active and focused, so a boat
that keeps busy is right apace with me. Ideally I would be an assistant engineer on a larger boat
, preferably in the Med or SE Asia
I am in this as a career. *I've stuck through the introductory phase for a couple years which demonstrates this. *On all boats I've been on I've noted changes that can be made to improve her, make her running more efficiently.
