Hello everyone, I am a first time poster on this site but i have been following topics on the forums for a long time…I was hoping you guys could answer a few questions for me. Here is a little background on me. I hold a 500 ton near coastal and a master of towing near coastal. I also have a A/B special. I have worked for one company for close to 15 years up in Alaska and love it except for one thing. And that is there is no set schedule.You could say it is feast or famine and my quality of life is lacking…Anyway I have heard through the grapevine that that there are a lot of jobs down in the gulf on OSV boats. So i had a few questions that i was hoping could be answered…
- Is my license big enough? And are companies in need of licensed people? ( i would like a mates job)
- Does not being from the area (down in the gulf) hurt my chances?
- Does anyone know as far as a vague picture on what the wages are?
4.could you please tell me some of the companies I might try to inquire with?
- Do most companies have schedules and do they pay for your travel
I know this is a lot to through out there but I am just clueless as far as this part of our industry… anyway any info would be helpful. Thanks
