Me and MrBuffnstuff are both coded pipe welders. Its a great trade, you get to see the world and the money is great. Im off working in Canada in three weeks then Singapore after that. MrBuffnstuffs travelled the globe a few times over!

I used to inspect and test welds - underwater... :)

Most divers are guys interested in underwater technology who become divers and then pursue certain specialities, like weld inspection.

But welder divers are usually specialist coded welders who become divers - and earn huge money!

Get on the stick mate, fvck mig off its monkey work. Take it from someone who knows mate.

I earn a fortune on the coded stick pipework and shipwork. Like i said im off to Canada in a few weeks then Singapore so you get around alot.

Thats not to say you cant earn alot in in the UK though because you can.
