I’m reviving this thread more out of curiosity than anything, about to sit for my CM/Master Unlimited exam and was wondering about tacking on an Aux. Sail endorsement down the road. All I can really find on NMC is the checklist for issuance and a few scattered references via google to the sea time requirements.
Now if I’m understanding what I read right, the sea time for aux sail is “lifetime” with no date limitation, is that right? Also, how does that work for tonnage limitations? I’m assuming (if I pass the exam and all) that the license would be CM Unlimited and then Aux Sail 100 Tons? Or how in the heck does that work? I’ve sailed with a guy that had 2nd mate Unlimited (steam, motor, and Aux Sail) and granted, he had tall ship time… but was that Aux sail unlimited because of the 2nd Mate license? Or was it because he had the time on the sailing ships?
