Hi there I am just finishing my courses to take my 500ton oceans 1600 mate test. Even though I have been master of a vessel for 4 years they want me to do RFPNW assesments. PMI want 700 for the simulator. I was wondering if anybody out here in the PNW would give me a hour of there time on there vessel for my assesments. they have to hold a 500ton and the vessel must be over 200tons. I know this might be a long shot but I would give you a free days work or buy dinner and booze! Just throwing it out there I hope it doesn’t seem rude not sure what the etiquette it is for asking something like this. I just dropped 7 grand on classed so it would help me out alot. Hopefully if I get all my stuff submitted in dec i wll be able to test in jan even if they lose the licence.
Cheers and Thanks, David
