Great work, congrats. Donít forget to call your boat insurance folks...you will likely qualify for some additional discount.

Why do recreational boaters get the endorsement for? Excuse my ignorance.

I guess it demonstrates to oneself mastery of the knowledge required to obtain the license. I will admit that going from point A to point B and arriving relatively undamaged and afloat is also a demonstration of knowledge. I will confess that left unused much of that knowledge does become increasingly difficult to recall such as light scheme of a working dredge with pipes in the middle of an inlet you are entering at 12:02AM. I am on my 3rd issue and agree the last 15 years of my life would have been unchanged without it.

And hoping the dredge has the correct lighting scheme displayed. But not to detract from Capt John's neat accomplishment.

If you are not getting your ticket for a paying job, the main benefit is that it exempts you from all the state licensing requirements.
