I put my license in continuity in 2014 when I was upgrading 2AE to 1AE because I couldn’t get through medical. I have 365 days as of sea service which I documented to the USCG then (and I still have the records now) but it was not applied to any upgrade since medical kicked me out before an evaluator even looked at my package.
I have always assumed that that time is lost to me.
I have been through the license general sections and the engineering officer sections of the CFR and the Marine Safety Manual Vol. III. I can’t find anything related to recency that applies to me.
Soooo … that makes me think that if I bring my license out of continuity I can still use that time to upgrade to 1AE? Its all in the 2011-2012 time period.
