Good Afternoon Gents

I'm in the process of trying to get a Seaman's Discharge Book as i've had to pass up on jobs because ive never had one. I've gone down the usual process and just hit brick walls!!!

I've worked offshore in the Gulf and Africa and just starting to find my offshore feet. Because i've never been on a UK Reg Vessel there not willing to help and im wondering if there's anyone out there that might be able to help or push me in the right directing?

Any advice is good advice!!!

Thanks again

Dave

A lot of dive companies will sort you out with a Panama Seamans Book, which is just as acceptable as the UK one.
Just ask your friendly hirer/firer.

Thank you for the heads up regarding the Panama Seaman's Book!!!

Do you know if I'd be able to apply for one as I have my own company registered and I'm currently a freelance diver! I'm not sure what the requirements are for the Panama one!

Contact any large-ish company in the middle east. Especially any one who has offered you work. Tell them you need a Panamanian sea mans book, pay about $200 and get the book. Seriously, if a company has offered you work, but is not able, or not willing to sort you out with the book if needed, you probably don't want to work for them

Think ive managed to get everything together for the application now.

Thank you to you both for the heads up! All the info was helpful! It's a small diving world, I'll get you both a beer if we cross paths!

Thanks again

Dave Brown
