Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...
Listen, At the level of Captain we are discussing, ships the size of the Bounty, it's not a certification, It's an MMD. Or Credential, Mercahnt Marine Document. You can not qualify to test until you have documented years of experience. Not years on a calander, years between the sticks, years of on the job training, documented time. Only then can you test for the ticket, it's sea time coupled with school, exams and scrutiny,
