Hey Roy - really glad to see you here. As discussed, you'll get more guys celebrating your picking achievements and pointing you in the direction you need to go than anywhere else on the planet.

Yeah in the real world you go to someone "hey look I opened this", then they say "but why you had the key already" and it pisses you off because it took like 10 months, but here it's all tranquil and shit.

Also, welcome another Australian. There are dozens of us.

Howdy Roy! welc
Master Mariner and Marine Surveyor sounds awesome. I was a machinist on a hydrographic surveyor for a while when I was 20 something, I regret to this day that I didn't continue on that path.
Anyhow.. lock sport is awesome too, I hope you will like it here =)
