Ship docking ----> Towing

Since licensed I have spent the past 4 years running mate, and now relief captain in Virginia. Starting to get a little monotaneous. I think i would like to go towiing again preferably on an ATB. I guess i am asking for input for good companies to consider and “ball park” wages as mate. Also is there a difference in pay being on an intergrated unit rather than towing on a wire? I did the whole conventional tow thing as ab in new york and was an OS for k-sea on an older ATB, but i never new what the licensed guys were making. I would like to buy a house and it is gonna be kinda hard with the low harbor pay. Any input would great.
Thanks
