If you look in the CFR 46 definition's you will find the Owner means owner of the vessel. Operator means licensed operator (read 6 pack vessel) and Master means Licensed Master (read inspected vessel). If you don't own the boat you can not attest to your own sea time. This provision keeps "billy bob" and "Floyd" from borrowing their uncle's runabout to get sea time and then signing off on themselves or each other to obtain Merchant Marine license's.
