    Hello all, I've been at a small boat station for 2.5 years (since bootcamp) and I've had my mind set on aviation. I recently decided to switch to MK because of the wait and I have a couple sign offs left and I can take the MK3 test. I started looking at the e-resume but found out I don't know much about cutters other than length and color of hull. My question is, are there any good websites that tell you things like number of crew, usual port calls, whether its 2 months out 2 months in or whatever it may be? I'm just trying to figure out what I want to put on the e-resume. Thank you!

    Awesome! Thank you both. Also do you get BAS if your on a cutter? Or does it depend on the size of cutter?

    In my opinion as an MK you will do a lot more on most cutters than at a station. Actually work on some serious power plants depending on where you go. The schedules are very unit specific, but generally by class you are looking at long 2-3 month patrols on WMEC or larger. Nice part is you normally know that schedule quite a way out, so planning things is pretty easy. A patrol boat is underway a lot less overall, but you don't really know when that is going to be, and you have a lot of standby time ect. If fun foreign port calls are your thing the bigger the better. WMEC, WHEC or Polar Roller.
    As far as BAS, unfortunately the benefits to going to sea are kind of going away. You get a very small portion of your BAS, the rest goes to the CG Dining Facility on board. Only exception I know of being the 65ft harbor tugs which don't have a cook. My sea pay will not make up for the loss of BAS until this year when as an E-6 I will get my 36 month consecutive sea time kicker, and even at that point it is probably worth less since sea pay is taxed, BAS is not.

    You probably wont be putting anything on a e-resume. A detailer is going to email you a list of picks and then you will go from there.

    Take what you like and leave the rest behind.

    It depends how many strikers there also are. When I was going through it we had about 20 strikers and 21 picks. I chose to fleet up so that the next year I could compete during transfer season because I didn't like any of the picks and I'm female so the only cutters on the list I could go to were 378s.

    You won't be using DA unless you are tour complete. Usually the picks strikers get are the left over list from transfer season, or critical fills.

    I chose to fleet up because there was a spot available. If there isn't a spot available then its not gunna happen.

    On a cutter you get BAS but then it gets taken away simultaneously because you have tk pay to eat at the galley. The only time you keep it is if the galley is closed, or if you were an officer and didnt eat ever

    but while you are on leave, from the cutter, you are entitled to receive "leave rations" which are payable at the same daily rate as BAS.
