Going off the success of the selfie thread, I was thinking of starting a new thread focusing on what the players of CraftyMynes do for work or hobby.
Feel free to post what you do, stories and pictures.
For the last 3 years I have been working as a marine mechanic/electrician/shipwright in the recreational sector. Before that I owned my own aerial photography business, and before that I did wine cellar and cabinet assembly work. This summer I just got hired as commercial marine electrician. I mainly work on commercial fishing vessels, however, I also do some tug boat and passenger vessel work.
I do anything from changing light bulbs to rewiring entire boats and everything in-between. The main reason I was hired was for my computer skills. (Mainly linux/low level communications) I do quite a bit of installing fish net monitoring systems and other sensors/devices.
The type of boats I work on are mostly commerical fishing vessels like these:
But I also work on boats like this one:
A lot of the time I'm working in a dirty hole like this:
On shotty wiring like this:
To turn it into somthing like this:
Some of the other systems I work on can cost upwards of $100k dollars just for the base configuration.
Inside this cabinet is about $50k and outside is another $50k of sensors.
I look forward to hearing about what everyone does out side of minecraft either in their spare time or for a living.
