The seriously funny part is seeing a 18-20 year old with a masters license, having logged his time sailing his laser around on the creek.
Meanwhile - I have 16 years of sea service with the Navy and can't use that time (it's over 7 years old and only documented as aboard, not time at sea).
I'm on my boat friday to sunday for 8 months of the year, not always for 6 hours of the day - call it 10 days a month, maximum, 60 a year because life gets in the way of every weekend. If I follow the actual letter of the rules I can never qualify for a USCG 6 pack. Makes you wonder how anyone does get a 6 pack BEFORE they go into the business.
