Is there any reason that I can't log my family's 19ft ski boat to satisfy those days? I've probably taken it out over 500 times on over a dozen different bodies of water. Am I missing something?
You have to be able to document the sea time. I believe that the definition of sea time means away from the dock (and documented as such) for at least 6 hours. I could be wrong on the #hours, but that's what I've been told by a USCG captain on our dock.

To put it in perspective, I've been on the water actively sailing, boating, diving, and related for over 45 years and have over 15000 sea miles. But can't document any of it except for a very small portion. It has to be documented (i.e., written down) and the USCG is stringent on what that constitutes (IMO, for good reason).
