everyone knows that or should as there is no examination or inquiry of experience...

I just got in a discussion with others here about the merits of renewing my 100 ton license...

now I didnt lie or fudge up my sea time...I did count most of my cruise as experience...but its really not indicative of anything special training wise.

my only thoughts on this matter is that in the US a license is valuable and attainable and useful especially if you ever plan to take people on for hire or a do a sunset cruise on your boat or go working on comercial boats...whatever.

as has been mentioned also its only after you get into the 200ton plus numbers and licenses that the effort and experience trully becomes important as well as scrutinized.

in any case...

there is no reason to tell those who want the license to not get one either, if you want to go ahead...
