USCG 100 ton masters license
« on: January 17, 2019, 04:19:37 PM »
I am currently enrolled in an online course, going straight to my masters 100 ton, and am scheduled to test on February 12th and then hopefully have everything in place to be a relief skipper for some of my friends out in Neah Bay as needed, and my regular work schedule allows.

Any advice on testing or where to focus my attention in this last month. Currently I have been taking loads of coast guard practice tests focusing mostly on rules of the road.

Rules of the road,  Nav aids ( cans, nuns, dolphin etc) , lighting (red-green...red, red, red etc) , low viz signals(short burst long burst, bells etc) a little about knots, probably some compass variation/deviation stuff, time/distance/speed, Ö.I took the course a couple years ago and ended up  with my Masters 50 ton. I'll rack my brain a little more and add some more tips as they come to me.


If you study and have a back ground in boating the test isn't really that hard.

I've got my 6-pack and the thing I recall is that that navigation part was very unforgiving - if you only missed two out of 15 or so you failed...? Been a few years, but I remember being stressed about that part. Make sure you're up to speed on it, regardless.

If you're anchored at night and dragging anchor what lights would you display?

It's a proctored exam by mariners learning center. Honestly, with the amount t of time I have put in, and feel like I still need to I should have done an in person class.

So plotting dead on is a must the questions build off one another, deck safety and general know the CFR's and/or how to find anything CFR related. Nav rules side lights, shapes, and pecking order are still stuck in my head. I'd refresh on the light list and coast pilot as well.

Same as a vessel restricted in ability to maneuver for the size of your vessel.

Red whit red sidelights and stern.

I got my 6-pack last summer, its the same material as what you will be doing, chart nav was pretty hard for me, rules of the road was pretty hard too, study on everything! Good luck!

If you're confident with the charting and navigation portion, just keep pounding those practice tests. Many of the questions on the written portion/rules of the road came directly from those tests, or were subtly different. They helped me a lot when I got my 50 ton
I hunt, therefore I am.... I fish, therefore I lie.
