        ANY OTHER INFO A NEWLY ARRIVING APPRENTICE NEEDS TO KNOW
Call the unit once you have received confirmation of your orders and speak with unit XPO.
Call again as soon as your graduation leave starts, and once more before you get on the
plane to pass your flight number and arrival time. This will allow us to meet you at the airport,
and we can answer your questions as they come up.
Station Maui has a total of 20 crewmembers, with two boats 25 RB-S and 45 RB-M. Small is
good, but it does mean that everyone MUST be able to perform the assignments of their
billet. Anticipate little time off until you are qualified as a communication watchstander, and
then an aggressive training program for boatcrew and engineer for (FA/FN). Leave is not
normally granted prior to boatcrew qualification, which usually takes about 2 Months after
your arrival at the unit.


   Additional Information:
We do law enforcement and search and rescue. Coming out of boot camp the first thing you
will need to learn is basic watchstanding. Its pretty simple stuff: answering phones, learning
the area, talking on the radio, checking computer traffic, security rounds of the station’s boats
and premises, etc. None of it is hard to learn, but it is very important stuff. You get a couple
of weeks to qualify in watchstanding, then it’s on to boat crew qualifications, this includes
knowing the equipment on the boat and how to use it proficiently. This is not too hard, but
once again very important. Once you’re a fully qualified watchstander and boat crew your job
as a member of deckforce, you (SA/SN) can expect to clean and maintain the boats, splice
lines, clean the station and grounds, and other odd jobs assigned by your supervisor. We get
underway a lot and you can expect that to take up a big part of your days. As a member of
(FA/FN) engineering you can expect to work and clean the boat’s engines and mechanical
equipment. You’ll learn basic engineering principals and care of the boats.


  Recreational Activities:
Flip a coin, - surf, dive, fish, snorkel, hike, go whale watching (seasonal), mountain biking,
windsurfing, hang gliding, para-sailing, snowboarding (Big Island), hunting, Opihi picking,
boating, bird watching, Luaus, ocean kayaking, etc., etc., etc. The weather is excellent all
year round. You never have to worry about finding things to do on your days off. Speaking
of days off, our duty rotation works like this: 2 sections are present and there are 2 different
weeks of duty schedule. This first week is section 1, they work mon-tues and fri-sat-sun, with
wed-thurs off (this is a long week). Section 2 has a short week, only working wed-thurs, with
mon-tues-fri-sat-sun off. Remember though no schedule is set in stone our work hours often
change due to demands of the job and training. Maui is a great place to be stationed. The
work is cool and the location is unbeatable. Keep in mind that while Maui is paradise, it is
costly and isolated. Be prepared to spend extra on food on average ($300.00 to $350.00),
gas ($3.50 to $4.00) gal, and eating out is not cheap. Flying to the mainland on leave is also
a pricey aspect of living here expect to pay around ($1000.00 to $2000.00) for a round trip.
This should not deter you from coming, but you need to have an understanding that living on
an island can create hardships for members and their families.
…Aloha and Welcome aboard!
