Stcw

Greetings ladies and gents,
I've recently adopted the boating lifestyle, having spent the last month on a Catamaran and currently helping to deliver a motoryatch to the great lakes.

I need to get my STCW certification somewhere on the east coast. I figured on Boston, Newport, Charleston or something of the like. I started my current trip in Lauderdale which was fine and dandy but hurricane season has those under sail moving north.

Can anyone point me in the direction of a good maritime school with some serious sailboat activity nearby in the next month? Opinons, interjections, personal experiences?

In NY we have: http://www.sunymaritime.edu/
and
United States Merchant Marine Academy
both should offer the STCW watch standing courses. King's Point may have more of a sailing program then SUNY Maritime but they are both good.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

For what kind of license? STCW certification is normally required only for international service. Sounds like you are new to boating. To get a 6-pack or limited tonnage captains license will require documenting experience (days of boating) and taking a course and/or passing a test. Check the USCG website for details.

You can get a 100-ton license without STCW. 200 and above requires it.
