    Hi all,

    Wondering if the dutch equivalent to the ENG1 is widely accepted on UK vessels (and all vessels in general)? I have to decide whether its worth flying out to get the ENG1 or if I can just sail to the nearby island and get the dutch equiv. I'm in Antigua and looking to get a deckhand position on a super-yacht in season.

    Thanks in advance.

    I find it interesting to see how few doctors as in the US there are two, one in Rhode Island and one in Fort Lauderdale. Needless to say the one in Fort Lauderdale has a nice little business.

    Yup I know where I can get them, (nearby island = St Martin). My question is whether I SHOULD. No point going to get it, only to find out that the boats want the ENG1 specifically and not an equivalent. Any thoughts?

    I have a UK CoC , my seafarers medical is a German one, I have also used one of these to revalidate my CoC.
