Getting master of towing

i have a 100 ton masters near coastal .i have been woking with it 5 months i have over 10 years of seatime what is the fastest route to 200 ton with master of towing. i have tried to go on coast guard website it is very confusing … thank you

Either you get a 500 ton license and a toar or you spend a lot of money and at least a year as deckhand after spending the money.

thanks i know i have seatime for 500 .can i go from 100 to 500 skipping 200?

Why not? Get the biggest license you can. Go for 1600 ton if you have the time…

thanks for the help i will be looking into it
