1. Dear Joanne, the first point you should be aware of is that time spent out of the UK on work does not count as time spent absent from the UK. So, your Jamaican fiance will be able to apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain counting the days he spends at sea as time spent in the UK as his job requires these absences from the UK. This is an exemption to the general rule that absences from the UK must be counted as time spent abroad.
2. The second point is that you can pool your funds for the purposes of making the application for Indefinite Leave to Remain. It is your fiance who will have to show "proof of funds" as it is him who is applying for Indefinite Leave to Remain. However, you can pool your funds if you wish.
