Re: Are You The Operator Underway?

There was a 4 year challenge period here, where you could simply take a test and pass without having to take a course. There's also an exemption for CG icense holders. Not sure what Maryland did. I agree that consideration should be or should have been given for experience. I think a number of states grandfathered everyone and began their process with " new boaters" or just applied the rules PWC operators. ( I think NY captures just PWC operators)
