I'm 5'7.5" (171cm) and I know i'm tall enough but what are the height restrictions for applying to be a RMC?
Chicogiz; said:I thought it was 90cm?
Min height is 3 foot 2
That means Doc, Sneezy, Grumpy & their mates can join.:wink:
At risk of being a pedant, the minimum height is actually 151.5cm
The reason for this, for those that are curious, is because of damage control considerations aboard a warship. If you're shorter than this, you cannot reach the top hinged clip on a water-tight door & could therefore jeopardise ship safety.
im 6 ft 5...
A little while back I attended a secondary school careers event with a sailor who was 6 foot 8 inches & a marine, who was "fun-sized" (you could have put him in your pocket were it not for the fact he's just specialised as swimmer canoeist). A young girl, in total innocence, came across and asked if there were any height restrictions, to which the marine replied, (before I could stop him): "Does it bloody look like it?"
