Re: Training & Safety courses for lower insurance?

That make sense since to become a Seven Seas Cruising Associate Commodore you must have lived aboard for 12-months in a row and made a single passage of a 1,000 miles or more and be nominated by a fellow Commodore. So you are demonstrating capability, whether is was through formal education or schools of hard knocks.

Re: Training & Safety courses for lower insurance?

I would ask the insurance companies directly. But fro my research classes and certifications don't make difference. There is no shortcut to experience.

Many times I have watched experienced people do things wrong. Just because you've been doing something for years doesn't mean you're doing it the right way.

Taking the class or reading the book gives you the right way to do it, then experience reinforces what you learned in class.

With the sea time requirements for the 6 pack (360 days at sea I believe), have you ever found an insurance company saying you do not have sufficient sea time to cover you?!? that seems pretty off...
