Young Brothers , if I recall correctly was once a real old Hawaii company owned by Dillingham (owned by the Bishop Trust). You cannot get more Hawaii than that.
However, Young Btothers is now owned by Foss , which is owned by Saltchuk (which also owns TOTE and a bunch of other companies).
Young Brothers, like most tug companies operating in Hawaii, cannot find enough properly licensed local crew. Wages are not high enough to support a family living in high cost Hawaii. They have to hire guys from the Mainland.
I’m a few years out of date on Hawaii, but as I recall hearing, I stress, hearing, Young Brothers does not pay travel, the wages are relatively low compared to the Pacific Northwest, so it is not practical for crew to pay for much of their own travel out of pocket. So the crews tend to work for several months straight at a time.
I once knew guys that worked on Hawaii tugs. for about six months at a time and lived in Thailand on their time off. Don’t know if anyone is still doing that.
