Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico
you only need a couple of captains and or yourself to provide hours...
when I got mine thats what I showed...getting a masters ticket(now in retrospect) is a joke
most people lie about their hours anyway
past the test and bingo
ps. I did mine in a "world renowned" ft lauderdale based school...there was not one physical or on the water test, there was not one hands on teaching part, nothing...anyone could do it...provided you had some sort of familiarity with boats
I was doing some reading a few days back and found the funniest add in a searching for crew list
it said "uscg captains license...new to sailng willing to learn and crew or CAPTAIN anywhere in the caribbean or pacific etc..."
and I laughed cause it made sense...if your good with books you can hop in, lie about your hours, take a test, and be a "captain" and be a complete newb at the same time! jajaja
Islander 36 no longer for sale...its MINE!
