First off, sorry for what’s most likely the most over posted topic.
I am currently 42 days away from being able to submit for my second mate unlimited. I worked on a tug boat as an AB working 12 hour watches for 44 days. My question is this. Having worked 12 watches as an AB, could the 2 for 1(days) be excused for 1 for 1? I called the NMC and they said it was up to the evaluator, but I was just wondering if anyone has submitted anything like this before, and received 1 for 1.
I should add, the GRT for the tugs I was on are: 114 and 189.
Any input is much appreciated!
