Going from 500 to 1600 master sae time and tonnage questions

HI as of late i have been with a friend of mine on a 32 meter yacht as a mate. its 105 tons to my understanding one must be a master, mate or a supervisory position for the time and tonnage for up grade… Am I correct that this will be accepted so I can upgrade from my 500 master oceans to a 1600 Master. I do know it 365 eight hour days or around 265 twelve hour days which on a yacht there is alot of that.

12hr days only count if the vessel is authorized to operate a 2-watch system. Something to look into and not assume.

pretty sure you will need 720 eight hour days
