Service requirements for limited master of Great Lakes and inland steam or motor vessels of not more than 100 gross tons.
Limited masters' endorsements for vessels of not more than 100 gross tons upon Great Lakes and inland waters may be issued to applicants to be employed by organizations such as formal camps, educational institutions, yacht clubs, and marinas with reduced service requirements. An endorsement issued under this paragraph is limited to the specific activity and the locality of the camp, yacht club or marina. In order to obtain this restricted endorsement, an applicant must:
Have four months of service in the operation of the type of vessel for which the endorsement is requested; and,
Satisfactorily complete a safe boating course approved by the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators, a public education 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,
Pass a limited examination appropriate for the activity to be conducted and the route authorized.
The first aid and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) course certificates required by § 11.205(e) of this part 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.
