    You should go in and demand a raise. That would make a several hundred out of work captains happy to at least have a crack at one job opening.

    You must be working straight time and can't get news for the last year or so, or your company provides a spectacular prescription drugs benifits that you utilize to the fullest extent with reality altering medications.

    Let us know how this works out.
    The time for taking all measures for a ship's safety is while still able to do so. Nothing is more dangerous than for a seaman to be grudging in taking precautions lest they turn out to have been unnecessary. Safety at sea for a thousand years has depended on exactly the opposite philosophy.

    Heard that gol was at 735-750 and Otto candies was close to that. I was trying to get some clarity on this besides rumor.

    simple phone call to the companies and ask what are you paying captains and are you hiring hear it right from them. that way you won't have to say you heard that from someone.

    I knew GOL was up there (pay wise) and Otto Candies has always been known to pay high, but depends what you are looking for. Unless things change, Otto Candies benefits package is not the best, and on a straight supply boats, they run without a cook. On a 220' they had a 6 man crew (that was a while back, not sure how it is now). One guy on bridge, one guy in engine room and one guy on deck. Compared to an ECO vessel, with about 8 to 12 on a vessel that size.

    Not sure what type of benefits package GOL has.

    Goes back to that ol' question, what is more important;

    high pay, sub par equipment, under crewed, sub par benefits or

    average pay, good equipment, crewed adequate, and decent benefits.

    Now I am sure there are companies out there that have the complete package. And it is not to say that a company that pays high has sub par equipment. I believe Otto Candies has good equipment, from what I know and have heard.

    It is just, what is more important?

    Are you talking about Gulf Offshore Logistics? They pay pretty decent, nothing close to what you posted unless you talking AB pay.
