I recently had an issue with receiving my MMC. I renewed last year and received the MMC and it appeared correct but i did not notice that the western rivers portion of my towing license was missing. I called the NMC and explained the problem and they had no problem sending me the corrected sticker that includes the proper western rivers endorsement. Upon receiving the sticker I received three stickers one for the western rivers one that says II/2 and another that says master valid for service on uninspected towing vessel upon oceans and western rivers.
Now I am confused as to the uninspected part. I currently have a 1600 master oceans and master of towing upon oceans, first class pilot. along with the stcw codes II/2, II/4, VI/1, V1/2, VI/3, VI/4, VI/5.
Why wopuld they only send a sticker that says II/2 and the other sticker that states the uninspected towing vessels when my current license states Master towing vessels. Is there another portion of the towing license that I am not aware of? Anyone else have this on there license?
May be Mr. Cavo could shed some light on it. By the way Mr. Cavo you signed my Designated examiner certificate!
Any info would be great ,
