I tried to search for this topic, but really had no luck…
I’m returning to sea and am submitting my paperwork to the coast guard for AB Limited. I have about 800 days of seatime, which is more than the 540 days that is required. I’m also looking ahead to the 1080 days to upgrade to AB Unlimited, and I want to know for sure how much seatime I have, exactly, according to the USCG.
What happens if I apply for AB Unlimited, but don’t have enough time?
I’m hoping it will automatically bump me to the next closest rating, AB Limited. Otherwise, is there a way to get an evaluation of my sea service, so I know how much time I have toward AB Unlimited?
