3rd mate and deck cadet?


#1

Hy there! I’m a deck cadet from constanta,romania in my 3rd year of school(from 4). These days i found this forum and read your posts. In my country i gave to make 12 months at sea as a dc to take the exam for oow,already made 9. If you can help me,i was curious about how is in states,what are the conditions to became 3rd mate? Also,i’m interested what is salary faor a dc and a 3rd mate? On bulkers for example.to compare with my situation. Tnx guys!

I can’t speak for all of the academies, because I’m pretty sure Kings Point spends more time at sea as cadets, but at Cal Maritime, we sail for 6 or 7 months as a deck cadet. We do 4 years at school just like you.
Salaries vary widely for cadets and 3rds. I think most cadets make around two thousand for two or three months of work, while third mates can make 50,000 to 90,000 a year. Some of the tanker companies pay on the higher end.

there are good money. now,in my country,if you are lucky to find a deck cadet position, you can take 300-600$ per month. i must complete 12 months as a deck cadet and for engine cadets-6 months

I go a the maritime academy in Massachusetts. we do 8 months at sea and make the usual cadet wages which average 900/mo. sailling jobs are hard to find in the US even for citizens

HOWEVER, I dated a nice Romanian girl many years ago, Corina Stanescu. what a little minx. met her in Bucharest right after the wall came down. and it wasn’t really dating [I]per se[/I], more like a 6 week romp.

Correct me if I’m wrong but Masters degree in IT is much more profitable than any(ex. master’s- and DPO’s) deck position on board most of the ships.
