Unlimited Sea Time on an OSV


My understanding from discussions on the forum is that the magic number is 3,000ITC to upgrade from 3/M to 2/M using time from an OSV. Which companies operate these larger OSVs? I’ve done some research on the ABS website, but with limited success. I hear Chouest operates a good many of these larger OSVs…are there any other companies that operate a good number of them? Thanks.


hey man, judging by your name, you’re from Chucktown? I moved down about a year ago. I work for Chouest on the Amber and I get sea time for my 2nd’s but not anything past that.



I just shot you a PM.


You can get your Chief Mate on a large OSV no problem.
