Chicken & The Egg for Ex Yachtie

Hi All,

I was in Yachting for some time, in various parts of the world. Now settled in Australia and wanting to get back in the game, I find that once a qualified Chief Engineer amounts to little, with a 'start again' in the AMSA system at Maritime College. They will however recognise 50% but now demoted to Engine Room Watch Rating, needing the sea time to get the ticket and vice versa....

I am struggling to gain 45 days at Sea with a Task Book for either and MED1, or preferably Class 3.

Does anyone have any suggestions on obtaining some sea site...maybe deliveries around Australia, I need >400 KW?
