    Default 3rd A/E Unlimited Steam

    All of my sea time has been on motor vessels. Will the Coast Guard still allow me to take the exam for unlimited steam, or do I need steam time. If so then how much. Sorry if this has been asked before. Homework time is running out as we are headed out deep sea with no Internet, and no gcaptain.

    How many steam ships are there anymore? I love the smell of hydrazine in the morning!
