Hi,

I recently graduated with a mech. engineering degree, and after having worked for a design firm for 1.5 years, I'm looking to transition to working on yachts.  I've worked on MEP systems for buildings, so I have an understanding of how they are designed, but lack hands-on knowledge.

I currently live in the NY area, and am thinking about leaving my job come May.  I am playing with the idea of shooting down to Florida hat in hand, looking for a job.  I may then also take an entry level certification course (unless I find one around here).  Should I apply for positions on the crew and assist the engineer to get training, or is it possible to be an apprentice?

Thanks for your help!
