“I’m not sure why you think it would do anything for you, you haven’t taken the exam so you don’t get a license. Be happy there a bullshit Large OSV license that allows you to work on vessels greater than 3,000 GT with only having taken the 1,600 ton Master exam.
Why would service of any kind exempt you from the exam? It doesn’t work that way for anyone else…”
…you are making this almost personal as if I said I’m the only person that should be able to do this. If I have to take the test so be it wouldn’t be the first and certainly isn’t the last. I’m also not the first nor last to think this is crazy. I get why they have a Large OSV endorsement. I just find it funny how you can be a limited master but be sailing in the capacity of unlimited master if looked at in a certain light. You have to admit painted in a way like that is kinda silly and backwards.
