Tonnage limitation removal

Hi, first time posting…I have a 3rd mates OICNW with a 2,000 GT limitation. I have to get unlimited seatime (of which I have none) before I can upgrade to 3rd unlimited and remove the limitation. My question is what’s the minimum seatime I need? The tonnage removal USCG list lists several options (see below). As of now, I’m thinking I fall into the last one where I need 360 days on unlimited vessel as an AB while holding a 3rd mate. But if anyone out there knows of a shorter route ID love to hear it. Thanks for any guidance.
