What's the "standard" deal for a mate these days?

Used to be 1 share for the boat and another share for each POB, but that was net profit, not the price the catch fetches. What's the usual deal these days?

2 guys on the boat = 3 way split after expenses. one for each guy and one for the boat. in other words - what you said

As a mate on a 2 man boat I got 20% in the 90's
I pay 20% each if it's 1 or 2 mates
There tend to be more trips without a saleble fish
At an equal share for the boat.
The boat loses money...meaning the captain loses part of his share and makes less than the mate.
If you account for non fish days expenses there would be nothing to split. Who would mate for a boat that doesn't pay?

The boat always gets a share. After expenses and also after income taxes.

20% of the gross or 20% of the net? What happens on days when you don't catch? What happens if you don't mate on the boat every day that it sails?

Sorry been busy..... I'm a part time commercial.... it's hard to get consistent mates.... I pay all the expenses every trip.... if I get a market fish.... 20% to the mate.... whoever it may be...... because I'm part time my goal is to break even
