Dockwalk tackled its most extensive salary poll to date. In addition to the monthly salary ranges provided by 10 crew agencies, more than 1,500 captains and crew responded to the online poll at

The tables below show both data. The “agency range” shows the average lows and average highs of all ranges provided by the agencies. Following are the online poll results from individual working captains and crew; the “poll range” shows the lowest and highest of all the responses, the “poll average” is calculated from all responses.

Note that not all positions with corresponding boat sizes had enough poll responses to be considered significant; those categories are marked with an asterisk to indicate if fewer than five crew responded in that size range for that position. Several categories had only one response, which is also noted. Large variations in salary ranges could be due to experience.

For 2013, this extended version includes additional crew positions, even if there was only one response, and further breaks down the numbers in the size range below 80 feet and 35 meters and above 180 feet and 60 meters. Please note that crew agencies did not respond in these additional categories.
