Captains Course – Operator Uninspected Passenger Vessel (OUPV)

$900

with John Coffin

Calendar Sep 22, 2020 at 6 pm, runs for 10 weeks

An OUPV (Operator of Uninspected Passenger Vessels) or USCG Six-Pack Captain’s License is required for those who want to operate vessels for hire with no more than 6 paying passengers aboard. Activities such as fishing charters, sailing charters, dive boat, eco–tourism charters, and any other watercraft for hire require this license. The Captain School of Key West offers this license course. You choose your start date. After completing the online course, you will be offered an online review and then you are ready to take our USCG approved exams with John Coffin in Maine. These exams are based on course materials that you studied in the online classroom. Class fee includes chart, navigation tools, and approved testing in Maine. This class will be offered through Zoom or Webex. Students must have an audio and video enabled computer, tablet or smartphone to participate. Merrymeeting will send you information about accessing the class prior to its start date.

There are many nuggets inside this course that will help you become a safer recreational boater. This course is good for anyone planning to proceed on tidal waters including bays, rivers, and more open coastal Maine waters. You will need to have a chart parallel ruler, a chart pair of dividers, and a chart of Casco Bay to complete this course. You can find these at marine supply stores and online. It doesn't matter whether your Casco Bay chart is paper or waterproof. If you have an old one that is OK as we are learning to navigate.
