There is this short story I am writing, and I want to be somewhat historically accurate in the details.

In the story, there is a young orphan boy who is serving as a deck-hand on a cargo ship from France to the New World (Quebec). The year would be 1635.

My question is, how much would he have gotten paid for serving as deckhand on the overseas voyage?

If, being a child, he doesn't get paid, and the Mate wanted to give him a little gift of our modern $30, how much would he give him? (I'm looking at this page) Would it be in sols, maybe?
