Hoping to return to Tug&Barges -not from GOM


[QUOTE=jdcavo;175477]It’s easier to say what is not time as “apprentice mate.” If you don;t hold the endorsement of “Apprentice Mate” the time doesn’t count as being an “apprentice mate.” An AB who holds apprentice mate would probably be considered to have met the requirement.[/QUOTE]

Can you please provide some direction on how one would go about getting the AB time credited as Apprentice Mate by the USCG evaluator if the company will not state “apprentice mate” on the sea service letter? Or is there some language in the CFR’s that could be used to convince the crewing manager to write the AB time as AB/Apprentice Mate?



Just out of curiosity , why isn’t there an endorsement for Bosun?
