Thanks, David M. I inquired many years ago when I had my whole life before me. It seemed I could've gotten some kind of 6-pack license w/ restrictions to daylight hours. My question was hypothetical in that while I am color blind (red/green no less), I have very little experience in boating
(partly as a result of that realization). I was just wondering if deliveries would be out of the question for someone with a similar "disability" (for lack of a better word) even if they had a great sailing resume. I imagine insurers could use it as a way to weasel out of a claim if anything goes wrong (and therefore nobody would hire anyone without the license)?
