You can't just "get the hundred tonner". Even the USCG isn't that stupid. You have to serve your sea time on a boat of sufficient tonnage to qualify for each tonnage. If you are sailing a 12 ton boat, you will only be allowed to sit for a 25 ton license (I believe that is the smallest). Next is 50, etc.
