Yet another exciting tonnage determination question.
I work on a ship with the following on its COI
Which from my reading of the CFRs I assumed makes the ship useless for sea time between second mate unlimited and chief mate unlimited. Not just useless for avoiding a limited tonnage license but useless for any sea time whatsoever.
I looked up the tonnages on the PSIX (civilian MISLE) and asked the NMC what tonnage they use for determining licensing. The woman on the live chat said that they use the convention (subpart B) gross tonnage which would be the 4093
So basically I’m asking if I should trust the live chat. If shes right it means I can start working on my classes for chief and figuring out the money situation there (so very expensive) and if shes wrong it means I’ve got to switch companies basically if I want to ever advance my license,
