Paul Marshall

In 1975 having finished school and requiring gainful employment, I went to sea as an engineer.

I thereafter spent the next 16 years or so developing some skills as an engineer on the various ships that the companies I worked for, let me loose on. My working life then took me ashore to work as a college lecturer and on to the dizzy heights of Head of School of Marine and Mechanical Engineering. Thereafter to technical superintendent and then to Technical  safety superintendent to  Marine engineering consultant and finally where I am today, a marine engineer   working on a freelance basis with a variety of companies for a variety of different types of work.

This variety of organisations and work types has provided me with a reasonable breadth of experience which I have always found rewarding to share with those who may be less well acquainted with the marine world in general and marine engineering in particular.
