                  In case anyone was wondering, i've done some quick tax calcs on the salaries posted here, and I've worked out how much you would have to get paid by a job ashore to get that amount (I only did the ones in GBP):
                  36k on ship = £50,381 ashore
                  30k on ship = £40,395 ashore
                  96.5k on ship = £162,500 ashore
                  280k on ship = £545,000 ashore
                  25.5k on ship = £33,800 ashore

                  If the master on the drillship was to pay tax on that, he would owe £127,063.36 in tax and NI.

                      It also raised my eyebrows. Most I have ever seen advertised for a Master was £650 per day, DP2 vessel. Which worked out over 6 months working in the year, is £117k.

                          I think that around the £120k mark is the top end for a Master, on normal vessels. I think jack up barge Masters can get a bit more, but I am not sure what extra certs/courses you need to become a master on those things.

                            I've heard that a 3rd ETO on a cruise ship is paid ~£27k based on 3 months on 6 weeks off which is equivalent to £21k if worked as 3 months on 3 months off.

                              I think £21k is less than minimum wage? (OK, sure you aren't working for 6 months off it, but it's the principle)

                              21,000 / 365 = 57.53 per day.

                              Typical working day of 11 hours, so...

                              57.53 / 11 = £5.23 per hour.

                              Congratulations, there are 16 year olds working in a McDonalds who outearn you But hey, at least you've got the view.
