Seaman pays pretty good if you are not in the tourist industry or on the research vessels. The Oil patch a deckhand is around an average $145. And the deck officers are $275 and up to around $400 daily wage. Plus you are far away from where any boss can look over your shoulder.
If you wanted a wuss job you could have became an Actuary.

I think I have one of the best jobs in the world; cinematographer. And they rank film editor in the top twenty; I would NOT want to be cooped up in a dark edit salon for months on end looking at other peoples stuff. Boring tedius, repetitive, sitting at a screen all day. Ooops, sounds like sailnet!

I would rank my job in the top ten for sure.

I think the list was made by a metrosexual.
THANKS FOR THAT! I'm an actuary!

billy- Only flaw with this line of thought (OK, one of them.) is that there are far more than 200 jobs in the US. This is only a list of the 200 they evaluated. Additionally, they made assumptions in their criteria that are very subjective. They used 5 criteria to evaluate the jobs, "environment, income, employment outlook, physical demands and stress". They assumed that outside as opposed to inside work was a bad thing; that lower physical demand is better than higher; and that low stress is better than higher stress. All subjective assesments. I think that is at the heart of why so many here love a job tat they ranked so low.

You could watch the dirtiest jobs in America on the Discovery Channel and decide for yourself of which is the worst.

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

No wonder I need to Sail

My wife is 143rd and I'm 146th. Didn't think our jobs sucked that bad, but good to have another excuse to go sailing.
Speaking of, I'm going out today 80 degrees 15 knts. Sorry Yankee brethren, ya'll can pay me back when it's 90 plus with 98% humidity down here (that would be May-Oct).
