We just had crew change over and I asked everyone who is on the boat at this time to show their documents so I could scan them onto the boat computer. After a bunch of hessitation, bit ing and moaning and argueing< i find this… no wonder thay didnt want to show there papers.
6 man crew - we run a 3 man crew on each watch
1)master opposite me vessel is over his tonnage,(has a 50gt Inland, vessel is 155gt), radar is expired, no mmd, no twic
- mine 500gt nc stcw, unl.radar, a/b unlimited, twic, fcc permits
3)engineer my crew mmd no twic
4)engineers relief mmd no twic
5)deckhand opposite crew nothign but a state drivers liscense
6)deckhand my crew master endosement on licsense,radar mmd, twic, (ink still wet on it)
I presented my findings to the owner of the company and he said it was no concern of mine. i replied to him if theyre i my crew they wil have proper documentation. He said I would go before they would.
So I left said company after giveing them my 2 week notice.
Anyone kow the legal ramifications of sailing beyond the scope of your papers or without documentation at all?
anybody need a wheelhose guy with inside(rivers and ICW, outside towing, anchor handleing and ship assist experiance or know anbody that does?
