I love the variety of my job; I can be on different boats every day of the week. We have massive projects, which might involve me working on a huge boat and upgrading it. There are lots of different boats in our marina and I can get called out to look at any of them. I have worked on everything from small RIBs up to 90ft motorboats. I am working on an exploration yacht at the moment, which is quite cool.
Rather than being a housing electrician, I’m a boat electrician. They are different systems – and you also have to take into account that boats are on water. Insulation is vital, especially on metal boats. I do the engine wiring as well as all the different systems from the lighting, right down to the toilet flushing. My job is different every day – there is an enormous variety.
