Not trying to jump in on this but I was wondering if I have a bit of sea time already and can use some of it and I was hoping to use my own sailboat for the past 3 years thing is there a certain size boat/sailboat that you have to own in order for it to be able to count? Ive looked at google and can't seem to find anything with that info. ?? Thanks Dan

Garffin,

In my experience, it is kind of up to the evaluator as to what counts for time but your boat will certainly count. I suspect that things have gotten stricter now that it is all centralized and not done in 1 location. When I got my first license at 18, the evaluator was willing to count time down to 15 years old and he actually counted a lot of time on small boats (15-20ft). When I renew, I no longer count that time. Rumor had it that when there was a florida examination office, they were known to give out time for jet skis, who knows whether that was true.

The thing that you will find when using time from your boat is that it will affect the tonnage of your license. This won't matter for an OUPV but if you want a 100 ton, you probably won't have the tonnage and will need to go for a 25 or 50 instead. I don't remember how many days you have to have at each tonnage level to get the different licenses but you should be able to find it. As long as you have 360 days total and 90 days in the past 5 years, you qualify for a six pack or a 25/50/100 inland. To get a near coastal license, you need 720 days of which at least 360 need to be beyond the inland line.

If you go for a license, take the towing and aux sail endorsements while you are at it. Both are 20 questions and you need at least half the number of days of required time as sail to go for that endorsement.

I hope that I am remembering this correctly. If I messed any of it up, someone please correct me.

Note this exception is for the Inland Rule only, the International Rule permits no exception. You need to pay attention to where the demarcation lines are. Adherence to this rule is pretty low, most small, recreational sail vessels don't have any dayshapes on board. If you are licensed, the best thing to do is furl your sails when powering in International waterways.

If you are saying a boat under 12 meters is required to display a steaming cone, under international rules, You are Wrong!


And this is a test Question, or was on my test.

You can look up the answer yourself Pages 78 and 79.

A fun test of the knowledge of dayshapes is to hang a ball off the spreaders at anchor and count how many people come by and ask what it's for.

Hmmm...thanks for the link, this is what I see on Page 78-79:

"

—INTERNATIONAL—
Lights and Shapes
RULE 25—CONTINUED
(e) A vessel proceeding under sail when also being propelled by machinery shall exhibit forward where it can best be seen a conical shape, apex downwards.

{Image}
Vessel proceeding under sail when also being propelled by
machinery. Same for Inland except that a vessel of less than
12 meters in length is not required to exhibit the dayshape.


—INLAND—
Lights and Shapes
RULE 25—CONTINUED
(e) A vessel proceeding under sail when also being propelled by machinery shall exhibit forward where it can best be seen a conical shape, apex downward. A vessel of less than 12 meters in length is not required to exhibit this shape, but may do so. "

I'd suggest that you are mis-reading the text if you believe that the exception comment in the IMAGE description is intended to apply to International...if it did, they would have just written it that way.

Understanding these exceptions are what makes the test a challenge. That there might be a difference of opinion as to what the words mean, would indicate the fundamental problem that the Rules are not very well written.

"The same for Inland" refers to the the size and shape and placement of the dayshape. Those requirements are the same for both inland and International vessels over 12 meters.

Except, International vessels under 12 meters do not display a steaming cone. 12 meters and under Inland has the option.
