I have a gentleman that holds a 1600 MATE Oceans and would like to obtain a 200 Ton Master Oceans. I was looking through CFRs and found nothing to tell me the requirements to do this. I did look through the deck exam guide also and found that a 200 Ton Mate can upgrade to 200 Ton Master with no additional testing. Being this guy holds a 1600 Mate Oceas and has completed all of the testing and OICNW training, would he have take a complete test to upgrade to 200 Ton Master Oceans? He has the authority to operate a vessel of not more than 100 tons with his current license.
Please let me know what you find on this. Thanks Bunches, Gretchen
