We are also normal human being. Like any other profession, offshore installation engineer is just another job. The only difficult thing is the offshore life part.
Basically when we are offshore, we are the 2nd most powerful person in line after the vessel superintendent/offshore construction superintendent/offshore construction manager. Our level is the same as deck foreman/barge foreman/shift supervisor.
Is either the offshore construction superintendent listens to you or to the barge foreman.
