A specialized profession, as the merchant navy is, requires lot of exchange of views. There may be professional exchange of Information or just a word from a member for the attention of the others and for their benefit.

Mariners are among themselves a community from what ever part of world they may belong. They share very similar problems and experiences thus making this group a home forum for all connected to sea or international shipping.

This group is mainly for the Pakistani merchant mariners and every thing concerning them in any aspect. Forums for Pakistani mariners are almost non-existent. There is no platform for the people working onboard merchant vessels where they could express their concerns and indulge in discussions regarding mutual interests from help in studies to queries about job availability. They could share experiences and seek help and motivation from fellow seamen.

It solely set up for your benefit only. Your participation and interest may help you in your quest and build in you a sense of community that we all, the merchant ship sailors, lack and miss so much.

This group may be of use for merchant navy employees in discussing:

  • Employment information and prospects. They may learn from the experience of others how a particular shipping company may be reached and how to go about it. The addresses of companies and the word of mouth about them. The pros and cons of employment and the reputation of the employer.
  • It can come up as a resource for the fellow mariners preparing for professional examinations. Information about nautical colleges and institutes and the expected expanses. The standard of studies and the guidance provided. Exchange of study material and useful tips.
  • Exchange of information of professional nature, about navigation, cargo or the ever changing maritime law and requirements of the flag and port states.
  • Share incidents that mariners come across when sailing. Experiences at ports – good, bad and interesting.
  • Humor at sea – there is for sure a lot with you fellows to share and make public.The world famous sailor’s stories; at least for the interest of the people who have never sailed and visited the globe the way you have. A mariner’s life is full of stories that he may love to share – motivational, incidental and accidental! Give your accounts for the ones who are leaping forward to enter the ships crew list and climb up the gangway.
  • Your ideas and dreams – there has to be a dream to come true. Some one may be able to show you how you should step forward to full fill your ambitions.
  • Guidance for the new comers and the ones who are interested in joining merchant navy. They will remain thankful to you for the information on misconceptions that you may straighten out.

The list may never end.
