OUPV (6-pack) Captainís Lic
Anyone getting their license recently or remember the details.
Have a question for the 360 daysí experience.
Of the 360 total days:
90 days must be within the last 3 years
90 days must be on Great Lakes only if you want to obtain a Great Lakes Routing on your license
90 days must be on Near Coastal waters to obtain a Near Coastal Routing
How do you document the days of service, especially some of the sailing days were before I intended to get the license. Do I need to declare my intention to get the six-pack and counting forward. i read it somewhere that they count everything since your age 15 or older.
What actual documentation they accept? Ship's log book, captain log's or just an honor system?
I read, think, and act independently; I don't come here to win a popular contest, nor I am here for free sex. I come here to learn, be challenged and be inspired in the art of safe off-shore passage. I am NOT afraid of dying in the sea, but I am afraid of dying in a nursing home and burdening those who I love.
I am old school; doing the right even when no one is watching is important to me.
