Master 100 ton Inland Captain needed

I just received this email from the owner of the “Willamette Queen”:

Dennis, My wife and I own the “Willamette Queen” sternwheeler here in Salem and have operated her for 18 years now.

We are looking for a 100 ton licensed captain to assist us with her day to day operations which is primarily lunch, dinner and excursion cruises. She is an authentic sternwheeler 87′ in length and just under 100 tons. Our route is a short one due to shallow water conditions on the Willamette river. The pay is very generous compared to other operators in the Portland area. I can be reached at 505-409-0741 by phone or WQSternwheeler@aol,com

Would really appreciate it if you could put the word out for us. Richard Chesbrough

  1. I have a 100 Ton Near Coastal Mate. Are you willing to consider a Trainee ?

  2. Dennis says:

    Darroch. You would need to contact Richard directly for an answer to your question. However, the sea service requirements for Mate 100 ton Near Coastal and Master 100 ton Inland are the same; 360 days. So you can apply to the Coast Guard for the Master 100 ton Inland. Since you may advance from Mate 100 ton to Master 100 ton without any testing, and the Near Coastal route is a superior route to the Inland route the Coast Guard may add Master 100 ton Inland to your MMC without any testing. Email me or give me a call if you have any questions.
