Life being a Seabee Builder?

am prior service Army 11B. I been out of Army since Mar 25 2008. Now I am wanting to join the Navy reserves and be a Seabee Builder. I was going to Air Force reserves;but, they only had supply, MP, Firefighter for me and those jobs did'nt interest me at all. I decided to go for Navy reserves and they had AME, BU and I picked BU rate because of the $20,000 bonus and learn contruction. The recruiter told me I get $10,000 after my first drill weekend and $6,000 after A school is completed at Gulf Port, MS, plus this will all be in writing no bull. Now I am waiting for the paper work to get approved to get in the Navy reserves. I will make sure it is all in writing or I will pick the AME job, which has a $10,000 bonus. What is the Navy reserves like? What will I do one weekend a month, 2 weeks a year and 6 months for deployment? What is the life like? Are the people good or bad like the Army? Do Navy reserve Seabee Builders go on ships or stay on the ground? Ect? Don't tell me to go Navy, because they show the sunshine and rainbows of the Navy and not the real deal.
