    Yes, that is true on many boats there. That is the top rate, plus 20 for overseas.

    If you can't make it on $850, you won't make it on $970. How much more will it take to bust the Jones act and give your job to a Filipino for 10% of what you make now? It is the stroke of a pen away.

    $850/day is about $155000/yr which is what a mate, 2AE or jr. DPO makes on some of the drilling rigs. So, comparing license requirements I'd say $850/day is reasonable for GOM work on an OSV.

    I for one don't think the OMSA right now wants to get into a political battle and do away with the Jones Act because you must remember the Jones Act also gives them a protected territory. I also would not argue that wage blackmail via a Jones Act threat is a reason to not wish for higher wages. When and if they cannot retain people with the qualifications needed they will increase the wages. Those who can leave and make more money should do so of they wish. Those who cannot leave and make more money but desire to do so should ask themselves why that is and take steps to remedy their situation or just be patient.
