Re: USCG Captain's License

In Baltimore there's MITAGS, Norfolk - Midatlantic Maritime. There're a number down in Fla but haven't been there. I've been more involved in upper tonnage though.

In San Diego, the San Diego Maritime Institute is a good school. I really liked my instructors and they'll go the extra mile in helping you study and learn the material.

JoePa,

In Florida there are several schools for USCG license. In Fort Lauderdale the largest is Maritime Professional Training on Andrews Ave. Good facility, outstanding staff and they offer all the courses you need from OUPV to 1600 Ton Ocean including all the STCW courses. I've taken several classes for various renewals with MPT and never been disappointed.
The Chapman School in Stuart, Florida has a good reputation and offers a variety of courses; SeaSchool in Fort Lauderdale is another choice.

Re: USCG Captain's License

I've read this old thread with great interest. I'm thinking of going for the 6 pack and running a (special niche interest) crewed charter out of the USVI. Would anyone know if I could legally take the boat and passengers into the BVI or Spanish Virgin Islands, if the cruise starts and ends in US territory?

Short answer "yes".

Provided you fully comply with all USVI regs. re US Flag Vessel, And insurance is OK.
If you land all persons on board must be able to clear customs and immigration.

Re: USCG Captain's License

SAIL FAST,
I ran US flagged boats from Red Hook a while doing week long on-the-water sailing instruction.
You must clear in to BVI C&I and pay the fee if you stop.
You must also have STCW-95 cert along with your USCG MMC in BVI
No one ever asked for any insurance proof.

Re: USCG Captain's License

This may have been covered either in this thread or another but I am unable to find it. I have previously owner three sailboats over 10 years ago. As part of documenting sea time on your own boat, you have to provide proof of ownership. Since I never really kept a proof of ownership from 10 years ago, is there any easy way of doing this?

I was given discounts both for my Master License and for the course I took to get it when I insured my sailboat through BoatUS.
