Good morning, I grew up on the water and sailed quite a bit, worked in the navy for 8 1/2 years as a nuclear operator on a submarine, have a nuclear engineering license, and have no work as an operator at a nuclear power plant for 5 years. I have certifications in HVAC a diesel mechanics. I am one day (as soon as my house is paid off) wanting to get into the yachting world as a engineer or 2nd engineer. How do I go about getting started in that? What kind of certifications do I need? What does a typical engineer make (I know it depends on the size of the boat)? Is it hard to transition from a chief engineer to a captain? Thanks in advance for the advice.
