Re: US citizen working on foreign-flagged vessels #2
What everybody has seemed to have forgotten is the $1200.00 or so it takes to get the STCW certification to work on ANY vessel that travels internationally. For ANY crew position, (stew, cook, engineer's helper, etc) on up on yachts (not sure about non-deck crew on ships these days).
Wiki says the standards are for*"masters, officers and watch personnel" only?
