    Interesting how they dropped the language...


    (a) Three years total service on ocean or near coastal waters.
    Service on Great Lakes and inland waters may substitute for up to 18
    months of the required service. Two years of the required service must
    have been as a master, mate, or equivalent supervisory position while
    holding a license as master, mate, or operator of uninspected passenger
    vessels.
    One year of the required service as master, mate, or equivalent
    supervisory position must have been on vessels of over 50 gross tons.

    The dropped reference to OUPV is more likely to be the result of copying and pasting from the section above for Master 1600 than it is to be another dark conspiracy by the evil minnions of the USCG. The reference to OUPV cannot be changed, it's in 46 CFR 11.418(a). A checklist cannot change a regualtion, so it is definitely still permitted. The checklist references the regulation, so it still applies, albeit through incorporation by reference.

    I am going nuts trying to get my 500 to 1600 ton upgrade ready to go, and not finding anything regarding sea service required to upgrade from 500 to 1600, not an original issue of a 1600

    I'm not looking to get it with less sea time, just not sure with what I have. I didn't have any sea time over 100 tons to use towards the 500, but most of it was on 99 ton boats. If they still do the tonnage x 1.5 I'll be all set when the time from sailing on my 500 is included

    Nothing, I don't know why the phraseology is even included. Probably there because of something akin to what Mr. Cavo referenced as far as copy and pasting. Or it may reference some old license or position that doesn't even exist anymore. The only positions that have anything defined for "equivalent supervisory position" in the Personnel Guide is for engineers. You will never convince an evaluator of anything other than the required stated time, serving in the required stated positions, with the required stated credentials.
