[QUOTE=txh2oman;132925]If you come on down and knock on doors (see multiple threads), and you have some actual 100-ton commercial experience (whether oilfield or not), you should be able to find a wheelhouse job on a crewboat, mini-supply or utility boat. It’s not glamorous, and the schedule will likely be 14/7 or 28/14, but it will get your foot in the door and give you some solid oilfield experience.
You will be looking at $280-$350/day starting, depending on whether the company drops you into a “third captain” (mate) position or you ride “extra” as a “training captain” for a while. I have done the 100-ton knocking-on-doors trip twice, the first time with no experience working platforms or rigs, and had multiple offers each time. Shoot me a PM for ideas of where to look (or search the forum – there are some good lists here). Good luck![/QUOTE]
Thanks for this Captain, I was doing an exact search on this before starting an OP, in order to avoid the sticks. Now that I see you have answered the question ~ pay rate ~ I was wondering if you would mind a PM from me with a further question concerning companies and the list I have gathered?
