    Default Long time since last time I have posted here.

    Hi.

    I got a new job as a port captain and tugboat/tow/icebreaker master.

    And i got an excellent agreement with the owner. The tug is to my disposal if I choose
    to do a salvage job at sea.

    Some here may understand what it means but I'll explain it shortly..

    The value of cargo and vessel together goes to the salvager. 60% shall the company have and the rest
    is divided by the crew where the master shall have a double share.

    The vessels passing here, are large merchant men carrying up to 50.000 tonnes of cargo....
    I only need one salvage job in my lifetime -- then retired for good

    Better odds than the lottery for sure.

    I'll say what we are all thinking:

    But if the salvage tether breakes in sovern waters once you hook are you not literally "on the hook" for the damages from that?

    Do they still break ships in Northern Europe or do you need to haul it all the way out to Bangladesh?

    I'm located in Skellefteå, Sweden.

    They Still break a lot of ships in sweden although a lot is broken down in Bangladesh as well.


    Well, I'm certainly in for some liabilities if I mess up the salvage. But on the other hand I haven't got a liability if I can prove that I
    Did follow the book during the salvage.

    Sorry that I haven't answered earlier. Has been a bit hectic

    I hope it comes to fruition but I'm not betting. That's an agreement for "just in case"
