(a) Limited masters' endorsements for near coastal vessels of not more than 100 gross tons may be issued to applicants to be employed by organizations such as yacht clubs, marinas, formal camps and educational institutions.

(1) Have four months of service on any waters in the operation of the type of vessel for which the endorsement is requested;
(2) Satisfactorily complete a safe boating course approved by the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators, or a safe boating course conducted by the U.S. Power Squadron or the American Red Cross, or a Coast Guard approved course. This course must have been completed within five years before the date of application; and,
(3) Pass a limited examination appropriate for the activity to be conducted and the route authorized.
(b) The first aid and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) course certificates required by § 11.205(e) will only be required when, in the opinion of the OCMI, the geographic area over which service is authorized precludes obtaining medical services within a reasonable time.
(c) In order to obtain an endorsement for sail or auxiliary sail vessels, the applicant must submit evidence of four months of service on sail or auxiliary sail vessels. The required four months of service may have been obtained prior to issuance of the license or MMC endorsement.
