A mariner called a REC about taking the test for a license he applied for. One small glitch, he had the new MMC in his hand with the officer endorsement already in it except he never tested is what he told the REC. Sombody at NMC keeps telling the evaluators to get the files out the door and we will deal with the errors later. I’m not sure who’s making that call but I would guess it’s coming from upstairs. God only knows how many like that are going out that are not saying anything. They probably can’t believe their good fortune.
I was told another draft was ready to go down to print and one of the “Dream team” members caught it. It was an original Master 25 ton and they gave him AB unlimited on the credential. All from a small vessel sea service form.
Now is a good time to start a career at sea. You might get lucky and start as a Chief Engineer. Maybe I’ll reinstate my credential from the 70’s.
