Seeing the finished product – a brand new ship – sailing away is definitely the best part of my job, knowing that deep inside it the pipes that I made, installed and tested are busy keeping the ship’s systems alive.
Preparing a new ship for sea trials has been my biggest challenge. It was hard work, with tight deadlines for my team to get it finished.
I’m half way through my four-year apprenticeship to become a marine pipefitter. I spend my days fabricating, installing and testing pipe systems on new offshore patrol vessels.
