    Very interesting. it appears that Resolve is sending an AHTS to Dutch Harbor to be a standby towing/salvage vessel...

    FULL TIME MASTERS - MATES for 210' AHTS - 6,000 HP - on salvage station in Dutch Harbor, Alaska - serving the Pacific ocean and Bering Sea areas on a year around basis. Good local knowledge of Alaskan waters & weather conditions are a must for unlimited navigation in sometimes adverse conditions.


    so much for the ol REDEEMER...a fixture in Dutch Harbor for over 30 years

    Already went. They moved the Resolve Pioneer back in July of 2013 from its old port of Mobile AL to its new port of Dutch Harbor.
    Some may remember the Pioneer as the tug that towed the Carnival Triumph into Mobile AL

    Now what is interesting is they are advertising for crew needed.

    It is interesting, but why just the deck side?

    Resolve bought Magone Marine. Its now known as Resolve Magone.
    The RESOLVE PIONEER with a 600 ton derrick barge in tow arrived in Dutch Harbor last summer. Presumably, Resolve was attracted to Alaska by offshore oil activity. Now that oil exploration is on hold, one wonders if they will keep RESOLVE PIONEER on station in Dutch.

    Word is that Resolve's pay is a little below average for Alaska. I've heard that Resolve wants to hire a few people with Alaska experience.

    To me, it is neither good nor bad that they are looking for crew, just interesting.

    TugSailor's post makes sense:

    Yes I agree about the pay offered. According to the listing on Gcaptain jobs, they are offering $90 to $100k year for master which for 6months is hardly much more than $500/day! Considering they want towing endorsement and Alaska experience that is low but the job would be mostly spend alongside a dock albeit in Dutch Harbor. If they want a 2/1 rotation then the dayrate becomes downright pathetic.

    I wonder if you get extra "salvage" pay if you go out and get a brokendown loaded bulker (SELENDANG AYU) or car carrier (COUGAR ACE) in a raging storm and successfully fight it back into shelter without proper tow gear? What if the USCG has taken the crew off and you have to put your own people aboard to rig the tow on a deadship without power (COUGAR ACE again)? NO THANK YOU IF THE ANSWER IN NO!

    OK, before anyone shits all over me I know COUGAR ACE was not in the middle of a winter storm when it heeled over on its side but it still required a crew to climb aboard and hand pull the tow gear up from the tug. Of course, one man died in the effort. I like the idea of doing rescue towing and marine salvage but there needs to be adequate compensation for all the grief involved and $500/day ain't even close!

    Is that the way it works or does the captain just babysit the boat till it's needed and then the expertise flies in for the job?

    I knew the Young Man that died on the Cougar Ace. He was a good Naval Architect and good guy.
