Salaries for Captains, Mates and Pilots

For experienced mariners, the job description for captains, mates
and pilots need no explanation. These are men and women who
command and navigate tugboats and supervise the vessel's crew.
Vessels may differ in their chain of command, where on a smaller
tug, the captain is clearly everyone's immediate supervisor. On
larger tugs, the mate will generally supervise crewmembers,
freeing the captain for more managerial and duties.
