Welcome to the Commercial Market

My first post to the commercial section!!

I tell all my clients that I am not some guy who used to sell refrigerators, I have had my USCG captains license since 1973 and have sold boats for 18 years.

I have been posting here and on the old Passagemaker site for about ten years now giving a bit of advise to boaters all across the country. Now I can give some information about some good deals and boats for sale that are above average.

I will have to check on my website, I wish I was 16 years old so I would be more computer savvy....

Ben. Getting the sea time is the hardest part of getting a captains license, for the license I have the requirement is 730 days of sea time within the last five years. The tonnage is based on your experience.
However a motorboat operators license for 6 passengers or less can be obtained with only 365 days of sea time.
There are many courses taught at various schools around the country and some online that teach you how to pass the written test which is very difficult.
A license is required to carry passengers for hire or if you have an expectation of earning money from the trip such as a real estate broker showing waterfront houses.
