  1. The quality of life on the boat depends on the country of origin, my room in the America ships had a sofa, and desk and private shower with the room wired for emails, plus the galley is open 24/7, the heli deck is really big, the ship is supplied with western supplies, however the Taiwan vessels I have flown on, have Asian food supplies, small rooms and small bunks, small heli decks and are generally uncomfortable and lacking to western standards, however I have heard Japan vessels have a pretty decent living environment, same for Spanish or French Purse Seiners as well or South American vessels. If you get a contract on a Taiwan vessel prepare to spend about 500-700 USD per trip for western food supplies, then plan to cook all your supplies as well. Good luck,
  2. Wherever the boat comes from will reflect in the culture, religion, values, ideas, language, and food on the boat, western civilization boats, are more reflective of western lifestyles, and standards of personal sanitation, safety, food etc etc. Asian boats are reflective of their own cultures and values as well, so if your a western pilot going to work on a taiwan boat, prepare for a major adjustment to life, it will hardly be recognizable to what your accustomed to. If you want a pretaste of life on a Taiwan boat, you should visit your local china town, live in the shittiest and smallest apartment available, and eat in the shittiest chinese restaurant in china town, for 30 days straight, while listening none stop to chinese chit chat, if your ok with that, then you may be ready to live on a tuna boat. Working on a tuna boat is easy, a couple of flights a day, sea level flying all the time, one passenger, full fuel, a little hovering work, no ATC, no airport ops, no controlled airspace issues, no company procedures really, except a few common sense rules, be prepared to experience the most boring place to live on the planet and your mind is in the right place. Be prepared to have asian men ask you about your sex life while in port, don't ask me why, I believe it's because they have no sex life and attempt to live precariously through your life. Be prepared to visit small little island countries where everyone has their hand out wanting something for nothing, and prepare to find tons and tons of tuna, without being paid a dime for it other than the flying salary, However, in Columbia South America they pay pilots $12.00 per ton, plus $4,000 USD per month salary, some private owned fishing boats in America Samoa pay their pilot's $7.00 USD per ton and $7,000.00 per month Cheers, Crazyhorse
  3. It is what it is man, from an investment perspective, investing any money in flight training would be better spent at a casino, on the other side, if your actually considering trying to make a living flying a Helicopter, without the qualifications it will simply be a pipe dream.
