    Default Mariner's day rate survey Jan 2010

    Am curious to see how the last 12 months have affected our days rates industry wide. a few of you may remember my efforts from previous years. it is an interesting database and it is important that we all know the going rates for our trade.

    Please feel free to post & share the most accurate information you may have as well as the companies.

    My input:
    Mooring Masters (Angola & Eq Guinea): US$3000/day
    Seacor Masters over 1600 tons oceans: US$575/day
    above with DP Cert add US$60/day
    Bourbon France pure DPO (no OICNW): US$740/day
    2nd Mate & DPO: Bourbon France, Oceaneering: US$540/day
    offshore survey technicians: US$650/day

    needed: AB, OS, 100 ton, 500 ton, Ch/Off, 3rd Off, Master Unlimited, Master Unlimited with DP, all engineering, and any others you bloggers care to add.

    as always, this public information is for our own good and the more we all share the more we all benefit.

    Great idea Richard!

    Reinauer's Daily Rates can be found on their webpage, Reinauer Daily Pay. Keep in mind that the rates shown INCLUDE $50.00 travel per diem with the exception of O/S's. That said, I think it's important to distinguish "Daily Rate" from "Compensation".

    Before they locked down the information the contracts for all of Local 333's companies were posted on their website. I have a copy of Moran's contract and it is quite similar for Deckhands but has more categories for wheelhouse and engineering personnel. It is also interesting to note that the $50.00 travel per diem is not paid to an "O/S or the crewmember serving in that capacity". If people have the desire I can copy the rate page and post it.

    Don't have exact numbers for Bouchard but have heard $365.00 per day which probably includes their $45.00 travel per diem. Bouchard's medical benefits, and cost thereof, have historically been hugely different from the other NY Tug companies. Maybe the highest daily rate, but you pay for it elsewhere.

    McAllister AB's, working in that capacity, $265; O/S $235. Harbor Tug AB $180; O/S $160.

    Vane Brothers AB $230.

    Well offshore Unlimited C/M's with DP get about $190,000 /year including bonuses & extra pay which, I guess, equals about $1400 /day. Unlimited 2nd mates make only slightly less.

    Unlimited Captains with DP make about $225,000 which equals about $1700 /day

    That being said, publishing rates online (or spreading them via email) can lead to wage collusion (also called wage fixing) which makes this information potentially harmful.

    My math might be off and that's just an average for the better companies. It can vary highly depending on location, company, and bonus schemes.

    For example, I hear that a captain working in Nigeria gets a 20% overseas bonus and a 25% danger pay bonus. This adds up to a lot of money.

    Yea, this is a good one. I was recently working in the Gulf for a ROV company as Master, making $700 a day. Running a 254 foot vessel.

    I have a friend that works at Cal Dive, running as Master making $850 a day. Chief Mate is $750 a day (they want U/L licenses).

    It looks about what I have seen except Noble, which is WAY off on the low end, and Groupo R which is way over on the high end. I have had Master and Chief Mate offers on older stuff, but not on the newer generation stuff.

    Is that day for day? 6 month's work?
