I'm not sure dredgers carry 2nd mates.........Skipper and mate doing 6 hours on 6 hours off with a dredgemaster on each watch with them. I may be wrong so its worth checking out.

Hello Skilguy/ Retired from dredging 6 years ago and, yes, they carried 2nd mates and worked a 2 week on/2 week off rota. Also the wages were decent.Also, if it was too windy you didn't sail. Good if you are married but a little boring if you are single and want a bit of adventure

Thanks a lot Tonykshaw . Im almost married, what is the most important to know for mates, manouvring ... or what. How about money, is it less than another type of offshore?
