Question: As per the info below, do the words “any” or “unlimited” make a difference in the requirements for the Mate opening on the Staten Island Ferry? If so, can anyone state which USCG regulations defines either usage?
On the Official NYC jobs link for Mate (ferry) Job ID 174405:
All candidates for Mate must possess at the time of appointment:
- A valid United States Coast Guard license as Inland Mate of Steam or Motor Vessels of [B]any gross tons or a superior license…[/B]"
And on the link from the Notice of Examination for Mate (ferry) Exam 5006:
“a. Mate of inland self-propelled vessels of [B]unlimited tonnage, or superior[/B] [B]endorsement…[/B]”
