Assistance Towing



 

 

 

 

 

Amendments to U.S. law in 1987 require that anyone who engaged in towing a disabled vessel for payment ("assistance towing") would have to meet minimum standards for knowledge and experience.

To offer assistance towing while holding a license as a Uninspected Passenger Vessel Operator or Master/Mate for inspected vessels under 200 gross tons, inclusion of a special "endorsement" must be on your license. To receive this endorsement, a passing exam score is needed but no additional or special service is required to qualify for the endorsement.

Persons holding licenses as Uninspected Towing Vessel Operator or Master/Mate on inspected vessels over 200 gross tons may engage in assistance towing under the authority of their license without any additional exam or service.
