This report examines the effects of sea pay and bonus payments on the decision to accept a billet aboard a Naval Reserve Force ship in preference to drilling at a Naval Reserve Center. After a brief review of the literature, it investigates the interest which reservists have in going to sea, and how this attitude is affected by socialogical conditions, active-duty experiences, reserve drill experiences and economic motivations. The purpose is to provide information on the effectiveness of non-pecuniary and pecuniary incentives accepting afloat billets. The method employed involved selected interviews with reserve personnel and a survey of attitudes and opinions among 735 Naval Reservists drilling in 31 Reserve Units located on the East Coast of the United States.
