I know the CFRs say all the sea time for 3/M Unlimited must be on vessels greater than 200 GRT. My question is do the evaluators cut any slack for service on vessels that are within a few tons?
Likewise re the AB Limited requirement for service on vessels greater than 100 ton, will the evaluators allow time on a 99 ton vessel?
Given that the USCG has permitted admeasurement of some pretty large vessels to come in at 99 GRT ton…
Again, I know what the CFRs say, I’m asking here if the evaluators cut any slack on these specific requirements.
