Since I am an excellent ship handler I would profer to work aboard ship somewhere where my skills would be of benefit on a daily basis. I am a good teacher and instructor so I could also instruct in the marine industry. I am also a very good administrator and working as a port captain or marine superintendent would also be desireable. I have a better than average understanding of marine engineering which would also be usefull in liasing with engineers and shipyard technicians.
