I was just told that I qualify for an unlimited lic with a 5000 GRT restriction, and that does not state anything about ITC on the lic. What is this good for and what ITC am I able to stand on as an officer?
It is good for running mate on anything under 5000 grt. I believe the official answer is that you can run up to 5000 itc as well but I would not feel comfortable doing that and wish the NMC would specifically spell out the itc tonnage.
Thank you for the reply, can you elaborate on the" not feel comfortable " part of your reply.
I wouldn’t trust a foreign port control officer to go by what the nmc says. I would be afraid the foreigners would insist on seeing ITC listed on the license even if the nmc says the 5000 grt covers itc as well.
So in other word I can’t work on a rig until I get that lifted ?
A rig is probably over 5000 grt but I can’t say for sure.
