I’m a Third Mate Unlimited currently working as on AB. I know I get 1 seaday towards my mates license for every 2 days I work. Im working a 12 hour day does that change it up at all? If i was working as a mate I know I would get 1 1/2 seadays for every day i worked. Also could you get the Captain or Company to give me mate time as an AB?

“Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to decieve!”
The 12-hour day must be “authorized and practiced” to receive the 1.5 to 1 credit. “Authorzed” means the vessels is allowed to have two watches by 46 USC 8104(g) and the vessel’s manning per its certificate of inspection is for 2-watches.
