I was hired at 39 by this company and most of the new hires are in thier early 40's or late 30's. I had a lifetime of experience but that's not why they hired me. You can get hired as an OS. ( ordinary seaman) for a decent daily wage and work your way up to AB. able seaman in a year or so. he could work for the company that runs tug's to HI from CA,.. Crowley, or what ever. 3 week's on 3 weeks off. the tall ships schools are costly in money and time, but the experience is priceles. I've seen people go from sandy to salty pretty quick on the tall ship's and or the tug's.
