Hi Buddy. Hope the online test went well for you.? I've been trying to get a start and have applied to many companies in Saudi and Dudai. Was wondering which recruiter you used?
It's a crying shame how many agencies have sprung up over recent years, all trying to get a cut of the action. That, combined with the plethora of 'ROV training establishments' flooding the market, is forcing rates down and playing into the hands of companies looking to maximise profits by way of reducing overheads.
It's also shattering the dreams of those that think getting into the ROV game and earning big bucks is living the dream. There is a dream (more of a nightmare really), and it's nothing to do with being paid big bucks.
Just wondering if anyone can give me some info on Seahorse Services in Vietnam?
I have not heard about them before but have seen a few of you have worked for them in the past. So far I haven't managed to find horror stories, which is a good sign but still want to be cautious.
How are they with conditions and payment times?
Any help is moocho appreciated.
Looks like another opportunity for someone to make a dollar!

Firstly, well done on getting a start - good to hear.
I worked out there freelancing a few years back and if i remember rightly, the employed guys were expected to do quite a few days per annum as part of their contract - not a bad thing when starting as you should gain valuable experience.
As for tax, i thought the basic rules were that you are expected to declare any income coming into the UK, (as you are a resident), but i would guess that you will be doing enough days out of the country to qualify for SED, (Seamans Earning Deduction), and should be able to claim it back or not have to pay it at all at the end of the tax year.
Maybe a quick call to a company such as Seatax or SK tax, (marine tax consultants), would be beneficial.
Thats all we need !!!!!! insane ROV's to match the crew ,,,even worse if its a female with PMS
Probably get an ear-bashing (not right on topic).
Given the number of "butterballs" I see offshore and by that I mean nearly spherical people I think it's a bit of piss taking yet again!
I'm no tri-athlete, in fact try not to know where or what a gym is, but I've been called obese here in Oz at OGUK medicals at 87kgs with a medium build and gone offshore to see guys 5' 4" with a 54" waist. They were Americans/Canadians, naturally (don't want to be mistaken for a seal pup)!
Now I don't care if you die offshore along as you don't injure/ kill me or anyone else but it beats me how I'd escape from a helo seated besides one of these or drag this guy to safety in a fire.
I'm over 50 now and therefore reasonably expect a medical but let's make the playing field level and ensure that corruption doesn't exist.
Sad to hear
Top bloke, great to work with
Condolences to Dan and the rest of his family
