Marine Technician

Pirate Cove Marina

Job Description

My job is never the same; it is a different task everyday. My daily routine starts with a brief conversation with our staff on the jobs that need to be accomplished that day and then the real fun begins. Throughout the day, I have staff members asking me questions on how we should complete each job as they encounter challenges and issues they have never seen before, or maybe the customer wants things completed in certain way. There are usually a few water tests where I need to test new product out or verify the work that has been completed. There are also conversations with potential customers on how we will go about fixing their issue. There is never a slow moment in my day which makes my days fly by. Plus, I get to see some of the latest and greatest developments before anyone else.
