Englishmen cannot work in the US without a work permit..
A USCG Licence is a lot easier than the RYA Coastal Skipper..
And Yanks lurve the accent..

Re: USCG Licensed Captain wanted

Based on the picture, I am assuming you are looking for someone with a 6 pk USCG ticket (<6 passengers)

Good luck on your venture. Naples is a great area.

How do ya know?
Never taken the test for a USCG Captain Ticket have you.?
Not a Walk In The Park I'd say.
A wee bit of study required to pass the first time.
I would rather have a root canal than that course and test again.(

RYA Coastal Skipper is a walk in the park compared to the USCG license, in terms of time required on the water and the time you need to invest in study to pass the exam. That's from an Aussie friend who's an RYA Ocean Yachtmaster and RYI instructor, and got his USCG license last spring. All that said, you can get your USCG six-pack and not have a clue how to sail a boat. But you'll know the names of all the lines on a tug and barge and what color rag to tie at six fathoms on a lead line.

RYA coastal skipper requires 15 days on the water while USCG license requires 360 if I recall correctly. I think the USCG coastal license also requires 90 days offshore or outside of the USCG operating boundary.

But yeah, the accent is what's important, at the end of the day. For some reason we in the US still equate it with intelligence and refinement, and confidence in your skipper is what it's all about.

You are comparing apples and oranges. The USCG tickets are primarily commercial and orientated towards people working on ships, ( hence the sea time , )

The RYA tickets are primarily leisure tickets and they test people on their own boats , they are divided into powerboat and sailing. There is an assumption in the RYA , that you are not a professional mariner.

We have similar tickets to USCG ,mall the way up to master mariner if you want the professional route.

I think I made that pretty clear.

The comparison was in time required to get the two certifications mentioned, not their applicability to any given purpose.

The time requirements are actually not comparable. , the USCG , like many professional mariners ticket , assumes the would be holder is at sea , even though they may not be doing anything much.. It's more of a " time served " basis.

The YM however assumes that part of that time you are the skipper. It's validating you are a skipper, not teaching you to be one.. The exam is a practical on boat examination of your demonstrable qualities as a skipper, not a ticket to" be" one.
