i am applying for my merchant mariners document and have my application completed. all thats left is the signed conviction statement. i can remember all of my convictions, just not the exact date.all of which are misdemeanors. i can describe in detail the events, just not the date. i know they are well over 5 years old, most closing in on 8 years. will this give me problems during the application process??i have all my stcw95 certs,clean drug screen, and fit for duty evaluation and i would hate to have wawsted all the time and money to not not get my mmd. also, do i need to state convictions as a minor?
