2oo ton mate


#1

can anyone tell what I can do with a 200 ton mate lic?


#2

Liftboats mostly… Theres a lot of tug boat guys with 200 ton licenses, but if you dont have a towing endorsement, getting your foot in the door will be difficult. Do you have an AB ticket?


#3

several companies in GOM have 100 ton PLUS boats. also private yachts… as mentioned above some tugs ,you can also use it for a 100 ton crewboat and get to yoru 500 ton master license.


#4

Assuming the MOT, tugs would be iffy. The market is glutted with qualified operators, 200T tickets are a dime a dozen. In NY you’d need at least a 500T to get through the door.


#5

yea, just got AB OSV, and with my seatime I could get the 200 to mate


#6

What about the " new QMED" ?

Engineers are currently more in demand.
