2. enough in-boat experience that people would be be willing to hire you

Doing an internet search would answer your question rather quickly.
You need 360 days in command of a vessel within the last 5 years and a "6-pack" license which you can get at any of the numerous schools that give the CG master classes.

school not required

If you have the 360 days you can buy a book and study for the test. School is not required, it's just one way to get the information. What you have to do is document the days by year and vessel, and pass the test.

For the 360 days, what actually qualifies. Does the boat need a motor? Does sailing a sunfish or Lase ciunt?

My license is Western Rivers. Out there even a 14 foot john boat counted, but I can't address ocean or sailing vessel requirements.
A day is 8 hours on the water in one calendar day.

Electronic Code of Federal Regulations:

USCG National Maritime Center


The 1st link is the CFR 46 definition of a DAY....For vessels under 100 tons you may request the CG to approve 4 hours. But, generally a day is considered 8 hours
