Currently hold a 3/M and was wondering if working as a Deckhand on a 100+GRT tug counts towards time for your 2/M. I know service as an AB is a 2 for 1 up to 180days. But I don’t know if this can count.
I was on a 4 man inland push tug. Captain/ Mate and 2 deckhands.
I’ve looked everywhere for this sort of information but can’t seem to find it. Only info I can find is through the CFRs and NMC checklist. If you read the job description it points out duties associated as an AB. Standing watch for lookout, line handling, repair/maintenance etc.
Any help would be appreciated!
