Question ???

Hi there, my name is Ross.
I have moved to Tampa to be with my wife who is American. I am a New Zealander who is looking into getting my skippers ticket. I am not a US citizen and will not be able to go for that for another 5 years. Is there anyway that I can obtain my skippers ticket without being a US citizen. Any help or advice would be much appreciated.

Regards
Ross

I believe foreigners can get a 6 pack, meaning you could carry only up to six paying passengers on a vessel up to your tonnage level. I don't think you will qualify for a Masters License which would enable you to run a Coast Guard inspected vessel carrying more than six paying passengers up to the tonnage level of your ticket.
