There are definitely financial benefits for having a risky position. However, this decision can only be decided by you. If this is your life long dream then the risk will less likely to be important. If your decision is based on financial benefit, then risk will factor in. Welding is a great career both above and below water and both pay well. Try to prepare a pro - con list and discuss with your family.

Jason’s Answer

It's extremely dangerous, which is why the pay is so high. The fatality rate is 15%, so imagine looking around a room of 100 people, 15 out of those 100 people won't make it. Whether you believe it is worth the risk is ultimately up to you. We have people risking their lives in the military for barely above minimum wage pay, while firefighters and crab fishermen also risk their lives and make a lot more.
