I am currently gathering docs to submit for AB Limited. In addition to normal recent US flagged service I have been led to understand by NMC that I can also submit sea service letters from time worked on dive boats in SE Asia 2001-2003.
Has anyone else submitted dive boat time as sea service for deck or captains’ licenses? Results?
U may have a recency issue with 2001 - 2003 seatime. I would double check the regs, find something that supports ur argument and then message the morons in Martinsburg and find out what their interpretation of the rule is because sometimes they can’t differentiate between definition and intent.
Usually, sea time is only valid for the last 5 years. Sea time from 2003 will not likely be considered even if it were on US flagged vessel working near coastal. But as stated earlier. Read the regs. They answer all.
