    Default Edison Chouest Offshore

    Any ideas on pay raises? For AB's?

    Also going for my 1600 ton mates ticket. How much are they paying mates?

    Yup, have friends there now, $500 a day is the most recent OSV mate's pay that I know of. I heard Nicky Collins say not too long ago that their pay-scale tops out at around $1400 a day for their Brazil captains.

    As I was a walkin' down London Road I come to Paddy West's house. He gave me a feed of "American hash" and he called it "Liverpool Scouse". He said, "There's a ship who's wantin' hands, and on 'er ye'll quickly sign! The mate is a bastard, the bos'un's worse but she will suit ye' fine!

    Top I have heard is $950 on a 6000 ton boat. Maybe $970 for master after the foreign bonus of peanuts.

    Hey now, don't shoot the messenger. This is from Nicky Collins' mouth to my ears. Whether its true or not I could not possibly say but since he's the head of their HR department, or chief recruiter, or whatever his title is, I would venture to say that he is a reliable source. I am 100% sure that I did not mishear him. He said "Captains on our boats in Brazil are getting as much as $1400 per day". Take that statement from whatever angle you so chose, good, bad, or otherwise.

    If you want to be a captain in brazil, then all the power to you....

    Nicky also told me if I didn't take a crap job with them years ago he was forcing on me I'd be screwed for good in this business.

    Obvious you never worked in Brazil. Yes the northern part of the country is very hot. However from Rio south, it stays fairly cool almost all year down there. In fact I have been to Copacabana beach in late May early June and wish I had brought a jacket, it was cold. We worked down south close to San Sebastasian for over a year and we saw seals on a almost daily basis in the open atlantic. It was actually very cool down there year round.

    I never knew that was a real place, I always thought it was just made up for that song!
