Whats makes a good chief engineer

  Lets face facts, there are engineers and there are good engineers.    I’d say engineers are employed for their years of experience and ability to prevent problems and keep the engineering team and yacht to a high degree of preparedness.    The best way to tell you have a good Chief Engineer is to measure how long it takes before the second engineer can operate the machinery correctly. I don’t know how many times I’ve trained an unskilled guy to perform highly skilled tasks.   A good chief will know he or she has to deal with what they’ve got for staff. There’s > more

Excuse factory leadership

  When you work with a really good Captain or Chief Engineer its awesome.   I’ve learned the how, when and why of managing people, projects and problems because I’ve work for some kick ass Captains and Chief Engineers.   Having said that I’ve worked for some Captains and Chief Engineers that need a kick in the ass……..   The way Yacht Captains and Chief Engineers are educated, trained and certified is certifiable.   Just go to any yachting bar and hang out with crew and realize these boys are the next generation of men in charge of this billion-dollar industry.   Yachting is nothing more > more
